Bob Dylan, Shadows In The Night 2015)
From first listen of Bob Dylan’s latest – just some files at the time – I knew it would be one for the den, one for a tumbler of whisky, one for winter nights – one for the vinyl collection. I left it a couple of weeks – wrote a fairly gushy review because I really do love the album and played it a bunch. Then went out and bought the LP. Glad I did. Only played it a couple of times so far but it’ll be one for the winter I reckon – it suits the room. I love the songs. And I love what he does to them – his voice, that band. It’s no huge compliment to call it the best Bob Dylan album in 15 years – but it is certainly the truth. And it’s the best one I can imagine for right now. That’s good enough.
