Dylan said himself in his 60 min interview that he cant do now what he done before, here is the interview.....

YouTube - Bob Dylan - 2004 - "60 Minutes" interview pt.1

my personal opinion is that, Dylan in his younger years was streets ahead of evrybody else, now in his sixtys I think he still is an exceptional songwriter, but I think like most other songwriters he has lost some of his magic with age.

I think comparing the Dylan of yesteryear to the Dylan of today can't be done. He's settled well into the elder statesman role. Obviously he's not going to be a provocateur like he was in his youth, but his songwriting is still exceptional. His last three albums are right up there with his previous work.

The man hasn't lost it. He's the best there ever was and even today's output still resides in a very exclusive upper tier.

Modern Times was his first #1 in ages. His last three albums have received about the highest critical reception possible, all of them winning the "album of the year" award in the Village Voice's national critics poll, with Time Out of Mind also winning a Grammy for the same category.

What's the point of this thread again?

Sounds more like he's going to be Paul Allen.

That's a picture of how Ernie Harwell feels every time he sees your signature.

Modern Times was great, I'm not a big fan of the rest of his recent output, although I've never listened to it all that much. But I am looking forward to his new one!

Its one thing to not enjoy his voice, its another to not recognize his lyrical talent, can't really be denied no matter what kind of music you listen to.

What recent output are you talking about? Modern Times is his latest album (until the end of next week or so). I'd count that recent output.

He said "the rest of his recent output". I guess he's talking about "Love and Theft" and Time Out of Mind. I guess, not sure if that's what he meant.

Yes, that's what I meant. I've been meaning to give them another listen, but haven't gotten around to it.

When we're talking about an artist that's been releasing music this long, I'd say anything released in the past decade is recent.

seen Dylan live twice last week,
and now I can honestly say IMO,

NO! Dylan is nowhere near washed up!
great concerts! he also performed "If You Ever Go To Houston"
for the first time, and it too sounded AMAZING!

YouTube - Bob Dylan - If You Ever Go To Houston - Live in Dublin 5th May 2009

the word "washed up" can't apply to somebody who a) never had any great musical talent (other than his writing) in teh first place, and b) has never really cared about being commercialy succesful at all.

dylan isn't a fucking legend because of how great a singer he was, or how great a guitar player he was.

dylan's a legend because he's bob fucking dylan, and you're not. maybe you're washed up.
