New Dylan CD – possibly Best Album Of 2009, according to MOJO

March 12, 2009
Thanks to Peter Brookes for the tip that MOJO, the achingly beautiful London-based Heritage Poprock monthly, has scooped the pool with an early review of the new album.

According to writer Michael Simmons:

“YESTERDAY, MOJO HEARD seven of what may turn out to be ten or eleven Bob Dylan originals…

“… ample proof of an artist steeped in the past but thoroughly living in the present, cognizant of everything, not afraid to point fingers or laugh at fools or fall in love.

“It’s a powerful personal work by a man who still thinks for himself… it’ll be in the running for Best Album Of 2009.”

Simmons reviews the seven tracks in detail – his article is well worth your time:
