I actually find Tin Angels to be one of the highlight. This for me is a highly listenable album and I have no problem with Dylans voice at any point, I think it draws you in and helps you really appreciate the top drawer story telling on offer here.
Michael Gira of the incomparable Swans: "Personally, I’m a little disappointed in his voice but what can I say? He’s 70 something. I think lyrically, though, it’s phenomenal. It is so beautiful. It’s romantic and suffused with a kind of morality and the meaning of death. You know it also has this overarching, sweeping poetic vision of life. I think it’s incredible. It makes you cry. It’s about how temporal we are ultimately. It’s this whole list of experience and it’s all pointing to that…"
I must say Bob really surprised me with this one. I had my doubts, but it turned out to be a rocking cool album with a melodic sound and those violent brooding lyrics to go with it. Would never have thought he'd release what is arguably his darkest record at such a high age.
