Anyone see the piece on Lost on the River in the Sunday Times? T Bone Burnett says:

"It's not like we are writing the next Bob Dylan record. The next Bob Dylan record is coming out. And it's insanely good."

Elvis Costello chimes in:

"And guess what? He didn't write any of the songs on it. So there you go."

It exists, it's been heard. When's it out?

Wow, that's awesome.

Maybe, despite the fact that I didn't respond strongly to Full Moon and Empty Arms, the new record is insanely good.

In the end, we know almost nothing about it. Everything has been speculation. In fact, no one even know if 'Full Moon' is on the record. Maybe it was a recording that he cut and instead posted to generate speculation.

I am more excited now then I was this summer.

Its coming out, I bet, in the spring.

Why? He has made this Lost River thing sound like a dodgy knockoff of the Travelling Willburys, so he's hardly and arbiter of good judgement.

I'm sure he's at least as reliable as a Rolling Stone review.

And we know this by hearing two songs out of twenty?

i have to say, 'a dodgy knock off of the Travelling Willburys' is a great way to characterize it at this point,
and, I would add, quite complementary and exciting sounding from a conceptual standpoint!

dodgy is much better than sanguine, musically speaking
and 'knock off' is one step away from knock out! (and 'knock out' covers legitimately how got a lot of fine bluesmen their names)!

here's to knock off outing it out of the park, T-bone.
or if you want to one word verbalize it, just T-bone it.

How did you manage to get ahold of this record?

I'm just going to enjoy the view here from the fence, and swing my feet in anticipation. Looking to be a hell of a Fall with a bootleg series, a compilation of covers/new songs, a new album and 3 shows in Chicago. I'm not even going to pretend to complain!

His career is more than just those two songs, you know. I'd say the producer of O Brother Where Art Thou? giving the thumbs up to one's cover album is a notable endorsement.

Prediction: Rolling Stone will give it a five star rating. The album, however, will be just pretty good.

Of course they will. And so will Mojo and Uncut, if they still exist.

They were talking about "Lost On The River", so calm down, nothing is happening, no new Dylan record is coming out.

Nope - reread it, you have missed the point....

P.Jekk - In my opinion, the only more or less consistently reliable music magazine in the UK at the moment is Q.

Well, of course it can be good, even very good, but do you really think stuff like TTL is a 5-star record? :D I think that some of us here are ever so slightly bemused by the somewhat excessive reception Dylan gets in certain magazines lately. That's all. Noone has said that "it cannot possibly be any good", those are YOUR words.

For the record, I like Full Moon, though the idea of a whole album in that style may not be on top of my wish list, but Bob has earned the right to do whatever he wants...

TTL is average co-written Dylan, but not sure what that's got to do with anything. I'd rather listen to an album first before predicting what it will or will not be. IMO most of his cover versions have been quite successful.

Who has said it cannot possibly any good? Who is "predicting" that it isn't any good? That is just a straw man your arguing against. We made a joke about how Rolling Stone, Uncut etc always give Dylan a five star rewiew, even less than stellar efforts like TTL. I repeat, noone has said that the new album is bad. Our irreverent jokes may also be a reaction to slightly hyperbolic use of adverbs and adjectives in the quote, "insanely good" indeed, but the main thing is how the adult orientated music press receives new material from our Bob.
