Great to See Bob on DVD

by on 9/20/2006

Video is great. Very natural, very Bob. I have already watched it more than any other DVD music video. Please put out everything available on His Bobness. The albumn is great. Music is beautiful and simple, fast and slow. The words prove it is always best to write about what you know. I thought the last album was about aging, this is more about peace with yourself. I know bob will walk us into the grave. -Phil

Product Overview

It's arguable that at no point since his 1960s heyday has Bob Dylan been as celebrated as in the decade following his critically acclaimed 1997 album Time Out of Mind. Numerous films, books, and albums--mostly Columbia's impressive archive series of reissues--have been part of a universal canonization of the singer and met with considerable enthusiasm by fans and critics alike. 2006's Modern Times, the third album to have been released in nearly 10 years and part of a trilogy that also includes 2001's brilliant and upbeat Love and Theft, is easily deserving of such enthusiasm and is further reason for the formal veneration.

Musically, the album finds Dylan once again mining the stately traditionalist sound first heard on Love and Theft Lazy blues numbers, piano-based songbook pop, and jumpin' country swing provide the backdrop for Dylan's continuing study of the vicissitudes of life, love, and death. Although he is certainly world-weary, a lot of life is lived in the verses of these songs and there is a dogged spirituality that provides, if not hope (a rather prosaic notion for Dylan by this point, to be sure), at least a means to finding contentment. Finally, a word about Dylan's voice here: while his singing has always been unconventional and never pretty in any traditional sense, in its raspy magnificence it is simply perfect for this timeless music.

Artist Bio
Bob Dylan began as a Woody Guthrie acolyte, imitating the dust-bowl balladeer as faithfully as a baby boomer from Hibbing, Minnesota could. It wasn't long before he found his own voice, spearheading the early-1960s folk revival as well as the singer-songwriter movement, and introducing poetry into pop music. Through countless changes in sound, image, and even religion, he retained his unique artistic vision even when his popularity occasionally waned. By the 20th century's end, Dylan was regarded as one of its greatest artists, a sort of Picasso of pop.

Rolling Stone There is no precedent in rock & roll for the territory Dylan is now opening with albums that stand alongside the accomplishments of his wild youth. This music is relaxed; it has nothing to prove. It is music of accumulated knowledge, it knows every move, anticipates every step before you take it. Producing himself for the second time running, Dylan has captured the sound of tradition as an ever-present, a sound he's been working on since his first album, in 1962.
Blender radiates the observant calm of old masters who have seen enough life to be ready for anything — Yeats, Matisse, Sonny Rollins. This is a music-first record that leavens blues shuffles with the moderate tempos and politely jazzy beat favored by Dylan hero Bing Crosby in the early ’30s.
