Whoa, was not expecting this. I intentionally avoided listening to Murder Most Foul (and the other recently released songs) during the shutdown, was biased toward trying to hear things in a proper album context. And fortunately the album was announced not too terribly long after, so I decided to wait.

Listened tonight for the first time to all of this - wow, again, I was not expecting this. There''s a lot I haven''t yet digested, but Dylan sounds good. Authoritative. The sound works well with his words and tone, no obnoxious arrangements (can''t say the same for Tempest!). I like this band. There''s "meat" to these lyrics, much to chew on for a long time to come. Love the themes. Lot of ideas worth reflecting on. Nice delivery. No gimmicks. The name-checking is a bit much (hearing Alicia Keys mentioned back in 2006 was interesting, but in the years since this approach has lost some novelty), but doesn''t detract too much. This album probably could''ve used more tempo in some places, but I''m not sure yet how much this will really detract long-term either.

This album feels like it has weight. It has value. Has the potential to be timeless. I love Dylan but I can''t say that about all of his albums. Hard for me to imagine someone really listening to this a few times and not getting something out of it.

Much gratitude to Bob Dylan for continuing to create, record, and release his art to us. Anyone who''s ever liked Dylan should pick this up.

An album of new Bob Dylan tunes is a special event. The 2020 opus is a two-disc release consisting of the 9-song Rough and Rowdy Ways and a 17-minute disc of Murder Most Foul. Except for the rousing Goodbye Jimmy Reed [the electric blues songwriter and guitarist,1925-1976], the songs and arrangements are delivered in various slow blues rhythms with dark tones or as freeform narrations. Throughout the album, the dazzling, cryptic, poetic mind of Dylan with a plethora of cultural references keeps us engaged trying to keep up. Dylan opens with I Contain Multitudes, a title and approach taken from Walt Whitman''s Leaves of Grass. The religious False Prophet leads to a Dr. Frankenstein-inspired My Own Version of You. A radical shift to the romantic is next with I''ve Made Up My Mind to Give Myself to You, played as if the final dance at an Offenbach ball. The sinister allusion of Black Rider, a vengeful agent, becomes more acute in our pandemic moment. Mnemosyn is the mythological goddess of memory and mother of the nine Muses, but in Dylan''s hands she sings of the chain of historical events and our place in it facing death. Crossing the Rubicon, meaning passing the point of no return, is another hint of an underlying theme of the album, transition, as Dylan is age 79. Key West, the final track of disc 1, is subtitled Philosopher Pirate (referring to Pirate Radio broadcasts of yesteryear), but takes on a different location, ultima Thule and the unknown, distant, religious shore of immortality. Murder Most Foul is an epic. The death of JFK and the 1960''s are the historical, superficial references; however, the tune looks back deeper to the seismic loss of American optimistic innocence and the rise of contemporary doubt. Our current year of 2020 is another transition point, and Dylan''s album could not come at a more appropriate time.

A timely discourse on the current American condition. Dylan erupts with words that evoke feelings of confusion, chaos, anxiety, and our/his never-ending desire for love and meaning and purpose. He channels Walt Whitman in "I Contain Multitudes" and lays down a litany of names and places about America yesterday and today. A genuine masterwork from our 79-year-old bard.

First off, I preordered this and it was in my mailbox one day after the official release date... thanks, Amazon!

I put both discs in my player and have been listening to them several times (yeah. I don''t have a life), and on repeated listening the album gets better. Dylan has never been known for his vocal skills, but apparently doing those cover albums of standards has exercised his voice in a positive way. There is a nice clarity that is suprising for a man getting ready to enter his 8th decade.

There are a few of straight up 12 bar blues that because of the progression are instantly familiar, allowing for concentration on the lyrics. These songs were written by a man that has been around and seen some stuff. A twenty-something couldn''t have lived enough life to write these songs, so those of us that have that "touch of grey" will enjoy the ride that this release offers.

At 79, the magnificent, always unpredictable Bob Dylan, one of the greatest artists of my lifetime, has given us ~ after an eight-year wait ~ another wondrous studio album of ten new songs to equal any of his late albums such as Time Out of Mind {which arguably this most resembles}, Love & Theft, Together Through Life, Modern Times, or Tempest. There’s a bluesy feel to many of the songs, and a few are lyrical and utterly, disarmingly beautiful, for example the lovely I’ve Made Up My Mind to Give Myself to You, and the tenderly melodic Mother of Muses. Black Rider is another highlight, a song that will I’m sure be thought of as a classic Dylan song in years to come. CD2 {all the tracks could have easily fitted onto one disc} contains the astounding marathon that is Murder Most Foul, a long meditation on the Kennedy assassination, referencing more artists than you can shake a shotgun at, from the late Little Richard to the Eagles! It’s an incantatory tour-de-force and his longest and most audacious musical statement since the equally incredible Brownsville Girl from 1986. On the nicely contemplative song Key West he mentions ‘Ginsberg, Corso and Kerouac’ ~ and I almost wept. The cover is amusingly retro, but the digipak packaging is a blend of niftily handy and hopelessly inadequate. How long before it tears, or one of the discs slips out of its thin card hidey-hole? No lyrics or notes. It took two listens for this stunningly good set of songs to seep into my bones, and now, like dozens before it, it will become a part of my life, as this amazing man’s music has been for the past sixty years or so. Mythic.

I found this album very easy on the ears from the get-go. I wasn''t expecting strong melodies or powerful, up-tempo numbers probably based on the 3 songs already released and Dylan''s more recent american song-book albums. It does seem a natural progression from his post 2000 output- not in terms of sonic innovation but in terms of theme and feel- particularly a sense of ending- inevitable with a recording artist of Dylan''s age. When I first heard Murder Most Foul I wasn''t exactly bowled over- wondering if was actually a song at all and not just poetry over some pleasant, nondescript soundtrack. It turns out this was a savvy move though, allowing time to sink in and prepare the way for what follows on the album proper. His singing as been questioned a lot in recent times (as well as back in the day) and he had gone some way to demonstrate he could still carry a tune (especially on Triplicate). This is also evident here in some tracks, although the cough-inducing bark is also present elsewhere too. The lyrics are wonderful throughout- sometimes sublime and other times clumsy (possibly deliberate on some occasions). This is a man who doesn''t seems too overwhelmed by the weight of expectation (nobel prize, chart position etc) and although some of it might have been produced over many years, other lyrics could have been created on-the-hoof in the moment (either way and a combination of both are totally Dylan). The music press are universal in their positive reviews of this, suggesting it is a late career masterpiece. One wonders if this is part of that blindness that strikes music critics at a point where I living legend is producing their last piece of work. How to be objective though? It seems like the man making music now is entirely different from the one who started in the 60s or even the 70s. The best approach might be to look at the albums since 1997 when he had his late career resurgence. Is it better than them? They do seem to share more similarities (especially from Love and Theft onwards). It may well require a period of time to live this album in, to live with it for a a few months or years to decide. It does seem to have some special significance and additional profundity but is this just what I attach to it? Musically I would say it falls short of Love and Theft or Tempest (which bizarrely received mixed reviews). I doesn''t have much in the way of up-tempo moments which really helped reinvigorate Dylan''s output (particularly after the monochromatic TOOM)- something he was conscious of at the time and addressed by choosing to produce himself from that point onwards. No doubt there will be years on unravelling to be done (with PhDs to be earned!) but I can''t help but suspect that Dylan has been far less precious about this material. It has certainly been a timely reemergence but I think everyone is so affected by lock-down and other world beating issues at the moment, that the end-of-days narrative found on this album might need longer to find its true place and significance. If Dylan has painted a masterpiece, it is more likely the wider canvass of albums he has produced in the last 23 years. Back to back I suspect he hasn''t managed such a level of consistency since the initial run from Freewheelin'' to John Wesley Harding. No other musician in popular music can surely lay claim to this. In the meantime, just layback, shut your eyes and let this wonderful album work its magic- we might feel like everyone else has given up but thank God for Dylan!

The most recent albums by the 3 best living songwriters are as good as any in their back catalogues: Egypt Station by Paul McCartney; Look Now by Elvis Costello and Bob Dylan''s Rough and Rowdy Ways. There are those who say Dylan cannot sing and then there are those like me who hears one of the most distinctive voices full of character. In Rough and Rowdy Ways he could be a performer in a saloon bar entertaining the customers or the drunk sat slouched on a stool singing these songs. Either way, I love that voice even at times it amuses me. Murder Most Foul is the standout track at almost 17 minutes long. Only Bob Dylan would write a song almost 3 times as long as Bohemian Rhapsody. It revolves around the Kennedy assassination and references contemporary songs. The music throughout the album has a jazzy feel about it similar to Love and Theft and Time Out Of Mind. My Own Version of You, Key West and I''ve Made Up My Mind To Give Myself To You are all outstanding songs. My Own Version of You is another long one but doesn''t falter on the way; the music has a familiarity about it and hooks you along. Dylan''s singing on I''ve Made Up My Mind To Give Myself To You is an example of what I was saying earlier. There are no weak songs and the lyrics will keep the listener enthralled as you would expect from the Nobel Prize winner; probably the best lyricist of them all. A great record to drink to on a lazy afternoon or evening. Could well be the last sound you hear before turning in to sleep. Let''s hope this isn''t Dylan''s last album but if it is, it is a worthy final offering.

Bob Dylan wurde am 24. Mai 79 Jahre alt und am 19. Juni 2020 wurde nun mit „Rough And Rowdy Ways“ sein bereits 39. Studioalbum auf dem Plattenlabel Columbia Records veröffentlicht. Es ist sein erstes Album mit eigenen Liedern seit dem im Jahr 2012 erschienenen Album „Tempest“. Mit den Liedern „Murder Most Foul“, „I Contain Multitudes“ und „False Prophet“ waren drei Lieder zuvor bereits als Singles veröffentlicht worden. „Rough And Rowdy Ways“ ist ein Doppelalbum, obwohl die Gesamtlänge der Musik auch auf eine CD gepasst hätte. Das Lied „Murder Most Foul“ sollte aber wohl einen exponierten, besonderen Platz bekommen. Bob Dylan erzählt auf „Rough And Rowdy Ways“ seine Geschichten zu Musik, die mal folkiger („I Contain Multitudes“, „My Own Version Of You“, „I‘ve Made Up My Mind To Give Myself To You“, „Black Rider“, „Mother Of Muses“ sowie „Key West“), mal etwas bluesiger („False Prophet“ und „Crossing The Rubicon“) klingt. Das Lied „Goodbye Jimmy Reed“ bildet hier eine Ausnahme und ist sogar ein Rock’n’Roll. Diese musikalische Mischung bekommt man auf dem ersten Teil von „Rough And Rowdy Ways“ geboten. Und dabei fällt auf, dass die Musik des Bob Dylan sehr repetitiv ist. Ein Akkordfolge wird immer wieder wiederholt, setzt sich dadurch im Ohr fest und hierzu erzählt Bob Dylan seine Geschichten. Es sind also nicht unbedingt die Melodien, die einen auf „Rough And Rowdy Ways“ fesseln – obwohl die Musik durchaus eingängig klingt. Es sind mehr die Atmosphären und Stimmungen, die Bob Dylan mit seiner Musik in Kombination zu seiner Stimme erzeugt und die jederzeit intensiv klingen. Beim zweiten Teil des Albums, dem Lied „Murder Most Foul“, wird diese erzählerisch-musikalische Vorgehensweise schließlich auf die Spitze getrieben. Zu überwiegend Piano- und Violin-Klängen hört man die Stimme des Bob Dylan, wie sie zunächst jenen 22. November 1963 beleuchtet, den Tag als John F. Kennedy in Dalles ermordet wurde. Dies geschieht aus verschiedenen Perspektiven und geht in eine Betrachtung der USA in den 60ern über und jene Personen und Musiker werden erwähnt, die dieses Jahrzehnt mitprägten. Das klingt durchaus bewegend und intensiv. Erneut ist es dabei nicht die Melodie, die einen packt, es ist die Atmosphäre, die dieses Lied zu etwas ganz Besonderem und Wertvollen werden lässt. Somit ist die Abgrenzung dieses Liedes durchaus verständlich, wenn nicht sogar sinnvoll. Das ist kein Folk, kein Blues, schon gar kein Rock’n’Roll mehr. „Murder Most Foul“ erzeugt nicht nur Atmosphäre, „Murder Most Foul“ ist Atmosphäre. Und die Höhepunkte auf „Rough And Rowdy Ways“? Nun, das ist sicher Geschmackssache. Jede und jeder, die oder der die Musik des Bob Dylan mag, wird sicherlich etwas für sich finden. Ich mag sehr den Folk des Bob Dylan. Nicht weiter verwunderlich also, dass meine Favoriten des Albums „My Own Version Of You“, „Black Rider“ und „Key West (Philosopher Pirate)“ heißen. Und dann darf in meiner „Liste“ natürlich auch „Murder Most Foul“ nicht fehlen. Sehr intensive Musik, die packt und beeindruckt. Fazit: Bob Dylans 39. Studioalbum „Rough And Rowdy Ways“ ist eine Scheibe geworden, die Spuren hinterlässt. Besondere Musik eines besonderen Musikers. Ich habe das Album nun viele Mal durchgehört und ich bin und war berührt von diesen Liedern. „Berührend und packend“, das bringt die Musik des Albums auf den Punkt. Sehr lohnenswert.

Das Lied „Goodbye Jimmy Reed“ bildet hier eine Ausnahme und ist sogar ein Rock’n’Roll. Diese musikalische Mischung bekommt man auf dem ersten Teil von „Rough And Rowdy Ways“ geboten. Und dabei fällt auf, dass die Musik des Bob Dylan sehr repetitiv ist. Ein Akkordfolge wird immer wieder wiederholt, setzt sich dadurch im Ohr fest und hierzu erzählt Bob Dylan seine Geschichten. Es sind also nicht unbedingt die Melodien, die einen auf „Rough And Rowdy Ways“ fesseln – obwohl die Musik durchaus eingängig klingt. Es sind mehr die Atmosphären und Stimmungen, die Bob Dylan mit seiner Musik in Kombination zu seiner Stimme erzeugt und die jederzeit intensiv klingen.

Beim zweiten Teil des Albums, dem Lied „Murder Most Foul“, wird diese erzählerisch-musikalische Vorgehensweise schließlich auf die Spitze getrieben. Zu überwiegend Piano- und Violin-Klängen hört man die Stimme des Bob Dylan, wie sie zunächst jenen 22. November 1963 beleuchtet, den Tag als John F. Kennedy in Dalles ermordet wurde. Dies geschieht aus verschiedenen Perspektiven und geht in eine Betrachtung der USA in den 60ern über und jene Personen und Musiker werden erwähnt, die dieses Jahrzehnt mitprägten. Das klingt durchaus bewegend und intensiv. Erneut ist es dabei nicht die Melodie, die einen packt, es ist die Atmosphäre, die dieses Lied zu etwas ganz Besonderem und Wertvollen werden lässt. Somit ist die Abgrenzung dieses Liedes durchaus verständlich, wenn nicht sogar sinnvoll. Das ist kein Folk, kein Blues, schon gar kein Rock’n’Roll mehr. „Murder Most Foul“ erzeugt nicht nur Atmosphäre, „Murder Most Foul“ ist Atmosphäre.

Und die Höhepunkte auf „Rough And Rowdy Ways“? Nun, das ist sicher Geschmackssache. Jede und jeder, die oder der die Musik des Bob Dylan mag, wird sicherlich etwas für sich finden. Ich mag sehr den Folk des Bob Dylan. Nicht weiter verwunderlich also, dass meine Favoriten des Albums „My Own Version Of You“, „Black Rider“ und „Key West (Philosopher Pirate)“ heißen. Und dann darf in meiner „Liste“ natürlich auch „Murder Most Foul“ nicht fehlen. Sehr intensive Musik, die packt und beeindruckt.

Fazit: Bob Dylans 39. Studioalbum „Rough And Rowdy Ways“ ist eine Scheibe geworden, die Spuren hinterlässt. Besondere Musik eines besonderen Musikers. Ich habe das Album nun viele Mal durchgehört und ich bin und war berührt von diesen Liedern. „Berührend und packend“, das bringt die Musik des Albums auf den Punkt. Sehr lohnenswert.

I Contain Multitudes kicks things off and acts like a contents page for the album, giving a sense of the atmosphere of fictional self-reflection, doom-laden poetry and cultural reference points that are littered throughout the whole collection. Musically sparse and slow, this is followed by False Prophet, the first example of three of those electric blues tunes Bob likes to recycle into his own worldview. This should have been the title track given the strength of the artwork for its online ‘single’ release. Next up, My Own Version Of You is wonderfully macabre and akin to Bob writing an episode of Inside No. 9. I’ve Made Up My Mind To Give Myself To You is a beautifully performed and structured ballad that may end up living its own life under ‘cover’ in the same way as To Make You Feel My Love. Spanish noir guitar flickers in and out of Black Rider, again highlighting Bob’s extremely well recorded vocals. Goodbye Jimmy Reed is as bluesy as it sounds and is another terrific postmodern blues from the man who invented and solely inhabits that genre. Mother Of Muses is a low-key acoustic-led tune the like of which Bob used to include on all his 60s classics but hasn’t delivered in strength since many albums ago. Crossing The Rubicon is final, slow fever-dream trip to the blues before Key West (Philosopher Pirate) switches gear with backing vocals reminiscent of Ry Cooder’s backing singers Bobby King and Terry Evans and lyrics that tangle and mangle mysterious imagery as Bob has been doing for nearly sixty years. Finally comes Murder Most Foul, his longest song and one of his most entrancing, taking a journey through dark history and the redemption that can be offered by the creative arts. Al of this adds up to without doubt the strongest set of songs and performances since Love & Theft - it’s as if a twin of Blonde On Blonde was thrown in the river at the time, only to be raised from the deep covered in barnacles and decay all these years later.
