Bob Dylan, ‘Tempest’ – Most Anticipated Fall 2012 Albums
The album contains ten songs, which were originally intended to share a religious theme. However as Dylan told Rolling Stone, it “takes a lot more concentration to pull that off 10 times with the same thread – than it does with a record like I ended up with.”
The album ends with a track ‘Roll On John,’ a tribute to former Beatles legend John Lennon. The title track is reportedly a 14-minute epic about the sinking of the Titanic that takes great liberties with the tale — for example, Leonardo DiCaprio is somehow on board.
