“Tempest” is Dylan at his haunting, searing best

I heard it for the first (and second, third and fourth) time today.

Wow! His genius is undiminished, even burnished by age.

And the closing song, “Roll On John,” will bring tears to the eyes of anyone old enough to remember
the living John Lennon.

The album goes on sale on 9/11–no accident, I’m sure, given the bloodsoaked imagery that pervades this masterwork.
