Together Through Life – Bob Dylan (2009)

Bob Dylan’s new record, Together Through Life, came out last week.  I’ve listened to it a few times.  I have to say that I think that Pitchfork’s review and score of 5.4 out of 10 is reasonable.  I like the overall sound and production; it’s warm and lively, and the accordian adds a lot of ‘spice’ without being overwhelming.  But overall it’s just a basic blues record, and the lyrics have few moments that really stand out.  It’s a nice listen (if you can deal with the fact that his voice is more shot than ever, but it fits the blues alright), nothing more.

    Listened to it last night while i was typing… totally agree with review. I switched over to Blonde on Blonde.

    Sometimes it’s best to go back to the proven classics… I can’t come close to counting the number of times I’ve listened to Blonde on Blonde, and yet it still has something special.
