For those of you who can’t wait till Tuesday to hear what Rolling Stone considers a five-star album, head to iTunes, where the entire release is streaming for free for a limited time.

“Lyrically, Dylan is at the top of his game, joking around, dropping wordplay and allegories that evade pat readings and quoting other folks' words like a freestyle rapper on fire,” writes Will Hermes in Rolling Stone. You can check out the rest of that review right here.
