OMG, I just bought my first Dylan song

"Thunder on the Mountain" from his new album, Modern Times. I like the rolling piano and round feeling to the song, and I'll concede that the weight of history is probably right to bestow on him the title "rock's greatest poet." But I don't connect with his words as much as his rhythm (in latter years). I still maintain Paul Simon's lyrics are more picturesque. My favorite is "The Mississippi delta was shining like a national guitar."

I think Dylan's voice has gotten better with age, so at long last, I bought a Dylan tune.
