Modern Times is the 32nd studio album by American singer-songwriter Bob Dylan, released on August 29, 2006 by Columbia Records. The album was the third work (following Time Out of Mind and "Love And Theft") in a string of albums by Dylan that garnered wide acclaim from critics. It continued its predecessors' tendencies toward blues, rockabilly and pre-rock balladry, and was self-produced by Dylan under the pseudonym "Jack Frost".

Modern Times is Bob Dylan's 32nd studio album, released on August 29, 2006 by Sony BMG. The album was Dylan's third straight (following Time out of Mind and "Love and Theft") to be met with nearly universal praise from fans and critics. Modern Times became the singer-songwriter's first album in the . At age 65, Dylan became the oldest living person at the time to have an album enter the Billboard charts at number one (Neil Diamond has since earned the title). It also reached in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Denmark, Norway and Switzerland, debuted in Germany, Austria and Sweden.
When Bob Dylan dropped Time Out of Mind in 1997, it was a rollicking rockabilly and blues record, full of sad songs about mortality, disappointment, and dissolution. 2001 brought Love and Theft, which was also steeped in stomping blues and other folk forms. It was funny, celebratory in places and biting in others.
be a tradition with Bob the album ends with an epic filled with emotion and great words. Ironically the 9 minute closer is titled Ain't Talking. It follows in the vein of Desolation Row lyric-wise, filled with mystical images it deals with countless situations while somehow managing to connect them all. Sitting silent after the album had ended I found myself sitting with a big grin as I realized this album not only exceeded my expectations, it completley blew them away.
Dylan's career comes full circle To being one on this album.
Love And Theft was quite unlike any other pop album-apart, that is, from Modern Times, its direct and audacious sequel. 83. The biggest disappointment here is that Modern Times is probably Dylan's least-surprising release in decades- it's the logical continuation of its predecessor, created with the same band he's been touring with for years, fed from familiar influences, and sprinkled with all the droll, anachronistic bits now long-expected.
