I thought some of the reviews of Modern Times by Bob Dylan were over the top in their praise. But I’ve taken the evening off tonight (with some Cougar Dark Rum - I was a sucker for those busty blonde ads!) and been listening to my recently acquired copy of it. It is the best thing I’ve heard from old Zimmerman since Blood on the Tracks. Like the latter, this album has a rambling, tentative character to it which a few critics found unappealing. I didn't. I found the album powerful listening with great lyrics. One of Dylan’s best. The rum was good too!
What did you think of this one?
