Artist: Dylan, Bob
Personnel: Bob Dylan (vocals, guitar, piano); David Hidalgo (guitar, violin, accordion); Stu Kimball, Charlie Sexton (guitar); Donnie Herron (steel guitar, banjo, mandolin, violin); George G. Receli (drums). Audio Mixers: Dana Nielsen; Scott Litt. Photographers: John Shearer; Albert Watson . 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.

Editorial 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."
