Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - p.77
5 stars out of 5 -- "TEMPEST is musically varied and fully of curveballs. It may also be the single darkest record in Dylan's catalog."
Entertainment Weekly - p.140
"Thirty-five albums in, Dylan remains as magical and mysterious as ever." -- Grade: A
Billboard (p.44) - "Rich in stories and some piercing couplets, TEMPEST hits high marks on the seven-minute 'Tin Angel,' the edgy 'Pay in Blood' and the grinding blues-rocker 'Narrow Road.'"
Q (Magazine) - p.99
3 stars out of 5 -- "'Scarlet Town' is the one moment where Tempest truly transcends....Its a reminder that, more than ever, music may be Bob Dylan's last unreconstructed pleasure."
Mojo (Publisher) - p.84
5 stars out of 5 -- "TEMPEST is Dylan's best musical album of this century, a vibrant maximising of strict rules and the savaged-leather state of that voice."
Paste (magazine) - "[O]ne of the most cohesive, musically and lyrically intense records he's put together in years."

Tempest, Bob Dylan's 35th album, continues to employ blues, country, folk, and ragged rockabilly to carry his songs. Unlike many of his recent recordings, however, he's largely left 1930s and early-'40s pop out of the mix here. Themes on Tempest are generally dark, rife with violence and tragedy -- including the title track, a 14-minute retelling of the Titanic saga. Also included are "Roll On John," a tribute to John Lennon, a roadhouse blues rave-up in "Early Roman Kings," and a nine-minute ballad entitled "Tin Angel." Dylan employed his road band and guest David Hidalgo from Los Lobos in the studio.
