here's robert forster's piece on the new dylan album:
here are some things i like about it: he's not writing for someone dumber than himself, he has standards that he's able to communicate and apply, and he got me thinking about dylan and songwriting in new ways. there's plenty to chew on for (dylan) obsessives and non-obsessives alike. it's also nice that he doesn't use "I" or try to be funny (though i like a lot of critics who do both), and that he writes really well.
what have you read lately that's good?

My mother listened to Loreena McKennitt’s The Book Of Secrets in our kitchen — that is, when I hadn’t pinched it to gorge myself on “Dante’s Prayer” and “The Highwayman."

That Grandstand Theme sounds like The Grassroots "Sooner Or Later" or, more closer to (your) home The Motor's "Forget About You."

AAargh, The Motors's
albinobone My black 2007 hub-capless Toyota Matrix has never sounded so scary as when I pull up to a red light with 'Funeral Dyke' playing on my iPhone. Don't be like that. We all do what we can. As a dad, my car is my rock club these days, and there are no bad shows when I drive to Canadian Tire for cat litter.

Made a quick run to Casey's General Store for a can of Long Cut. On my way back, I pull up to a red light with Glycerine from Bush blasting in the background. My steering-wheel air guitar is rockin' the repeatable riffs with professional precision and complete accuracy of every single note. I look to my left as I come to a slow rolling stop to gander upon a crimson red Corvette. To my surprise, I see a made-up hottie behind the wheel with no need for an airbag. While setting up in my gun-metal gray Silverado perch, I continue to glaze over the car and just happen to notice that the hottie takes note of my presence. I decide to move on to the steering-wheel drum set only to realize that Glycerine has no drum-line. She continues to observe my brilliant performance as I make up a quick symbol dance with utter and absolute failure as the light turns green and she taps the gas. I perform my finale rock-fist pump knowing that I made someone smile (and quite possibly laugh) at my expense.
