The American living rock legend, Bob Dylan, is indeed one busy music man. For more than four decades, he has been constantly recording music - with an average 1 album every 2-3 years.
In his latest album in 2009, Together Through Life, Dylan shifted his music to pre-rock & rolls style. Several songs of the album are unmistakable blues, such as the opening track "Beyond Here Lies Nothin'", "My Wife's Home Town", and "Shake Shake Mama". The rest of the album are simple rock songs. One of the highlight is the fine love ballad "If You Ever Go To Houston". With all these blues and ballads, this album can fit nicely into rock-blue category. The songs tell story of trouble in life and hope in love and romance - in a style that Dylan is good at. He closed the album with "It's All Good", the only song in the album with energic rock sound. It is a nice blues album with a touch of Dylan's poetic skill. It may upset some fans who love his famous folk-rock sound, but it will sure not bore them.
This album comes in 2 version, the normal album and the deluxe edition. The deluxe edition includes an extra CD contains full 60-minute "Friends & Neighbors" episode of Dylan's radio show 'Theme Time Radio Hour'.
