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

I was just making a return visit here to say exactly that - glad we are on the same frequency. Bob's song fails to transcend it's platitudes, while Leonard's mines it's long and latitudes. Exactly. Beautifully put. This one is deep and wide and does transcend any platitudes. When I mentioned To Mak...

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

It's this album's "My Oh My" - a sweet gulp of breath between dives, but that's not to damn it with faint praise. Try writing a better statement of loving need than this. It can't realistically be done. So well said. It can't realistically be done. (And for the record, I like it a lot more than To ...

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

If I Didn't Have Your Love was one of the tracks that initially grabbed me the strongest. It's simplicity is deceiving and whether it be addresssed to an earthly or celestial lover, this song goes straight to the heart. And it will be the track on this album that will be most covered and has the bes...

Does anyone else hear the Jedi Theme from Star Wars in the recurring violin melody on "It Seemed the Better Way?"

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

My god. Folks this album is as good as advertised. I'm on my second listening now. The production is super tasteful. The orchestrations well arranged with no whiff of synthesizer. The lyrics are as expected, superb. And these songs. These songs. They really burrow straight into your heart. This is a...

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'

interesting to note that Dylan mistakenly describes Sisters of Mercy as opening in the minor key Yes, I also noticed that. But I think Dylan simply mixed up the first and the second line. The first line uses major chords, the second line minor chords. Could be. But as you know, the first chord of a...

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

However, interesting to note that Dylan mistakenly describes Sisters of Mercy as opening in the minor key. It doesn't. It opens with a major chord. It may seem insignificant, but from a musician's perspective on this conversation, where one titan of songwriting is describing another's craft, it's an...

Re: Title song 'You Want It Darker' now on YouTube and Spotify etc

Does it really matter one bit if there was an edit or there were multiple takes of his vocal track? (not directed at you Judas but at the NPR article). Punching in vocals is a common practice in recording to begin with. And regardless, it takes not an iota away from the brilliance of this song or t...

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

This article is sad, profound, and inspiring. And deepens the context of this upcoming album, which sounds like a masterwork. My heart is hurting a little bit though.
