Bob Dylan
Modern Times
Workingman's Blues #2

Artist website: Bob Dylan
"Modern Times" is Bob Dylan's first all-original album in five years. Dylan sings the blues with style, in "Thunder on the Mountain." He embodies the mature romantic crooner on "Someday Baby." His anthem to the workingman hits home in today's economy. Sounds a warning of eminent tragedy with, "The Levee's Gonna Break." but it is the style and context of "Ain't Talkin'" that fast forwards listeners from the 60's to the present day.
