Bob Dylan songs are like the ghost buses that drive around our plague ridden cities you wait for hours for one and then they all turn up at one. The only difference is you want get aboard one of these songs and immerse yourself in the deep crackling wisdom and croaking genius melodies.

After his recent epic 17 minute ‘Murder Most Foul’ that dripped with cultural references and a deep dark wisdom Dylan is back with  “I Contain Multitudes.” which is a mere 4.38 but crackle with the same kind of sage story telling and a long life pun into a wizard’s yarn. It’s introspective, its crackles and it’s quite brilliant with likeness like, “I’m just like Anne Frank/Like Indiana Jones/And them British bad boys the Rolling Stones,” as he also name checks Edgar Allan Poe, William Blake, and more.
