5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful music to listen to, 27 Mar 2007
This review is from: Modern Times [CD + DVD] (Audio CD)
I, too, saw Bob Dylan at the Isle of Wight Pop Concert in 1969 and have always been a fan. I bought this album in trepidation due to some of the reviews on here but I have to say that I'm very relieved and utterly delighted. Modern Times is a matured Dylan, a calmer Dylan - yes OK, an older Dylan. But so what? Most of his audience are growing older with him. I for one thoroughly enjoy these songs and absolutely love "Workingman's Blues", "Thunder on the Mountain", "Rollin' and Tumblin'" - yeah, alright - most of them. There's lots of great stuff that reminds me of many other artists as well as Dylan (e.g. "The Levee's Gonna Break" is pure JJ Cale) So - shock! horror! - Dylan is singing middle of the road songs. Well, we've been here before, and I loved it then: Self Portrait ... "All The Tired Horses", oh yes!

My advice to you: if you are a real Dylan fan go out and get this album. You will not be disappointed.
