Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

This album feels like Old Ideas done right. Which is harsh given Old Ideas is a fine album and part of a fairly spectacular late career trilogy (or "run" may be a more accurate term) but it did feel to me to be slightly less than the sum of its parts and a little too stilted in places by comparison ...

Re: The Darker album: Interviews and reviews in the media

Only 3.5 stars in that Dutch publication? Hope it was out of a maximum 4

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

Steer Your Way as a sister song to Dylan's Ain't Talkin'... I like that.

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

I should have added I was t hugely keen on If I Didn't Have Your Love initially - if felt a little too sweet and perhaps not totally in keeping with the tone of the album but I'm coming round to it a bit more with each play.

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

Treaty is the one most critics will reach for as the big standout (and it is of course superb notwithstanding a part of the melody sounding to my ear near identical to Anthem) but at the moment, I'm finding Leaving the Table just as powerful. On the Level is delightful; Travelling Light is wonderful...

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

Sublime piece of work. If I Didn't Have Your Love the only one not quite hitting the bullseye for me (yet). A little too sickly sweet perhaps? Early days though. The album as a whole I'm reasonably confident is at a minimum as good as Popular Problems which I love. Whether it will pull ahead remains...

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

Agreed. It lent authenticity to the piece. I was also a little uncomfortable at him merely describing Roshi as "naughty" when perhaps something stronger was required.

Overall though, a memorable article which almost doubles as a mini biography.

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

Amazing article. also amazing quotes from dylan, i'm not sure i've ever heard him speak so lucidly about another artist before it's quite an honour. im little disconcerted about the section where he balled out the interviewer for being late however- not sure what to think of it but for some reason ...

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

That is some article, thanks so much for posting... As primarily a Bob fan, huge bonus that the interviewer has managed to coax Uncle Bob into giving detailed quotes as to how highly he rates Leonard - but there's so much more in there. My only tiny regret is that the new album itself isn't discusse...

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

It's all gone a bit quiet on the review front. Once the embargo was lifted and the Uncut/Mojo reviews dropped, I figured there'd be a load of them but not much joy as yet...

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

Ms. Simmons also tweeted at one point that after 4 plays she was upgrading her one word review of the album from "great" to "magnificent". I don't know whether that upgrade post dates the writing of her review in Mojo or not.
