I have written in the past about why I consider Bob Dylan to be my favorite musician of all time. At the age of 71, he continues to experiment with and mold his signature blend of troubadour folk and rebellious rock into a sound practically unique among the music being produced today, making every album he releases a cause for celebration. Tempest, released on September 11 of last year (oddly enough Dylan’s 2001 album Love and Theft was also released on September 11 of that year), is one of his finest recordings since 1997’s Time Out of Mind, one of the high watermarks of his music career and possibly the greatest album of the 1990s. Since Time, Dylan has settled into a comfortable groove of writing and performing songs written in the traditional of the finest musical storytellers. The best tunes on these albums are mini-epics of love, despair, honesty, and hope.
