Forty-five albums, sixty-eight years, an uncountable number of songs written, and Bob Dylan is still just blowing in the wind. Dylan has often been compared to a poet who writes his odes to music, and recently, people have begun to talk about him as a was - he was the singer/songwriter of his generation. He was revolutionary. He was a genius.


Forty-five albums, sixty-eight years, an uncountable number of songs written, and Bob Dylan is still just blowing in the wind. Dylan has often been compared to a poet who writes his odes to music, and recently, people have begun to talk about him as a was - he was the singer/songwriter of his generation. He was revolutionary. He was a genius.

With 'Together Through Life,' Dylan's forthcoming forty-sixth album, he has done something truly revolutionary: lit a match to the banners proclaiming his reign as our protest, poet king at an end. 'Together Through Life' makes Dylan relevant to our times, an artist who, at sixty-eight, still has a lot of interesting things to say. It is also his most interesting record since 1997's 'Time Out of Mind.'

There is so much of Dylan that we have yet to hear. On this new album he has it all! Laughter, beauty and heartbreak fills the tracks and it is definitely an all American album.

As one might expect from Dylan, the vocal tracks cease to be about what the lyrics are saying, but how the man himself makes you feel while singing them, croaking and jiving in whispers that makes you feel like he's telling secrets set to music. On 'Together Through Life,' Dylan seems comfortable, spontaneous, and in a mood to please absolutely no one but himself. This perspective makes for one of the most organically enjoyable albums of the year.

When this album hits stores you should run right to it and buy. Sit back relax and enjoy with friends as Dylan takes you through his life and career through his music and lyrics.
