Top 20 of 2012: 15. Bob Dylan – Tempest

15. Bob Dylan – Tempest

Bob Dylan - TempestThere’s a reason people still listen to Bob Dylan. It’s not to remember the greatness that once was; it’s all about what he still has to offer.

Dylan is unquestionably one of the greatest songwriters to ever live. Sure, he’s faltered a few times in the course of 35 albums, but he’s been on a late-career hot streak with brilliant albums like Modern Times and Time Out of Mind. Tempest might even stand above those modern masterpieces.

Most musicians don’t ever come close to 35 albums — and you almost always wish they don’t. But none of them are Bob Dylan.
