This was my fave.

That was some pretty good A.J. Weberman shit.


I really enjoyed this. Thank you, BD.

last night i heard a review of bob dylan's new album. is this a joke or something? Sinatra standards?

obviously the reviewer gushed over it while one of the songs played and i thought "surely he's not talking about this song. this is terrible."

$10 says that Rolling Stone puts it on the short list for albums of the year, followed by a reissue of Elvis Costello B-sides, a Paul McCartney solo retrospective, and some undiscovered LCD Soundsystem bootlegs.

The reviews I've seen for this new album have been all over the board (though generally skewing positive) but this one from Paste - giving it a 9.0 - seems like a little much: http://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2 ... eview.html

Closing paragraph:

Shadows In The Night should be remembered as one of Bob Dylan’s greatest albums that extends the story of American music he began telling us with Self Portrait that carried through the albums Good As I Been To You and World Gone Wrong. It’s not rock and roll. It’s not party music, but Shadows In The Night is better than I can find words to convince with. It makes me think that anyone else who’s been thinking of putting out a record this year should just close up shop, go on vacation and wait until 2016. The light that shines out of Shadows In The Night is blinding. When Dylan flexes and fires on all cylinders like this, nobody else has a chance.


FFS, really?

Katz. Just.....no. It's not bad, I guess, but come on, guy.

If he had wrote that about Tempest I would've thought for a couple seconds about if he was right. This one? Yeah no.

How many of those takes do you think you already have? God love Dylan, he's damn-near Jagger-levels at bilking the rubes for more dough.
