We’ve lost track of how many albums that makes for the Hall of Fame singer/songwriter, but this one’s getting decent reviews — although one reviewer suggested it has a “bleak” feel to it.

“The disc has the live-in-the-studio feel of Dylan’s last two studio records, 2001’s Love and Theft and 2006’s Modern Times, but with a seductive border-cafe feel (courtesy of the accordion on every track) and an emphasis on struggling-love songs,” Rolling Stone magazine said it its review last month.
“The effect — in the opening shuffle, “Beyond Here Lies Nothin’,” the Texas-dancehall jump of “If You Ever Go to Houston” and the waltz “This Dream of You” — is a gnarly turn on early-1970s records like New Morning and Planet Waves.”
Seems like the old guy’s still got it working.
