Bob Dylan claims he hasn't heard a decent record in twenty years, reports ContactMusic.com.
"I don't know anybody who's made a record that sounds decent in the past twenty years, really," said the singer, whose new album Modern Times is out on August 28.
Should you be wondering, Dylan has released eight albums in the last twenty years. We assume they sound cack, too.
Okay, we've misled you slightly: Dylan's gripe is with the transition of music in the studio to compact disc. He doesn't think CDs sound great, and can understand why illegal downloading is now so common.
"Well, why not? It ain't worth nothing anyway. You listen to these modern records, they're atrocious, they have sound all over them. There's no definition of nothing, no vocal, no nothing, just like... static.
"Even these songs probably sounded ten times better in the studio when we recorded 'em. CDs are small. There's no stature to it."
I received a DVD a while back in a gatefold LP sleeve. Maybe that's what labels slapping their music onto CDs should be doing, eh Bob?
