Bob Dylan's new song

I've always found Bob Dylan's music thought-provoking, and sometimes inspiring, as well as poetic and prophetic. 
   However, the older he gets, the worse his singing becomes. 
   This new song, "Murder most foul," reminds me a bit of a chant rather than a sung performance. Somehow his voice isn't as offensive as recent albums. 
   The song, 15.56 minutes in length, recalls the murder of President John Kennedy. Dylan also poetically and prophetically references many musicians, politicians, historical events, and even alludes to biblical motifs and the divine. Well worth a listen!
