Bob's Back!

Dylan's New Album Hits No. 1 on Charts: "Bob Dylan is back at the top of the charts — for the first time in 30 years. His new album, 'Modern Times,' reached No. 1 on the album sales chart, selling 192,000 units in its first week of release, according to Nielsen SoundScan figures released Wednesday.

The critically acclaimed disc is Dylan's first No. 1 album since 1976's 'Desire.'"

bill, here's a question for ya--who's a better songwriter, Dylan or Leonard Cohen?

He's apparently also the oldest living musician to have an album debut at number one.

I think I'd vote for Dylan over Cohen. Though there are a couple of Cohen's songs that I love, I think Dylan has done more great ones.
