LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Bob Dylan says modern recordings sound "atrocious," and even the songs on his new album sounded much better in the studio than on disc.
"I don't know anybody who's made a record that sounds decent in the past twenty years, really," the 65-year-old rocker said in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine.

Critic Steve Jones, writing in USA Today, praised the album by saying: "It takes about 30 seconds to figure out you're in the presence of greatness."

Is he talking about the production process (digital) or the actual music itself?

I think he's referring to production/mixing.


"You listen to these modern records, they're atrocious, they have sound all over them," he added. "There's no definition of nothing, no vocal, no nothing, just like ... static."

And the gem...


Noting the music industry's complaints that illegal downloading means people are getting their music for free, he said, "Well, why not? It ain't worth nothing anyway."

Bob is totally right!!! Music had pretty much sucked since the 1980's....Bob has never been a great singer and you can hardly understand him, but he was a great songwriter.

You listen to his early 60s stuff. Just stripped down and raw. And it's hard to top it.
