Highway 61 Revisited

Album Summary

Highway 61 Revisited is the sixth studio album by American singer-songwriter Bob Dylan, released on August 30, 1965, by Columbia Records. Having until then recorded mostly acoustic music, Dylan used rock musicians as his backing band on every track of the album, except for the closing track, the 11-minute ballad "Desolation Row". Critics have focused on the innovative way Dylan combined driving, blues-based music with the subtlety of poetry to create songs that captured the political and cultural chaos of contemporary America. Author Michael Gray has argued that, in an important sense, the 1960s "started" with this album.Leading with the hit song "Like a Rolling Stone", the album features songs that Dylan has continued to perform live over his long career, including "Ballad of a Thin Man" and the title track. He named the album after the major American highway which connected his birthplace of Duluth, Minnesota, to southern cities famed for their musical heritage, including St. Louis, Memphis, New Orleans, and the Delta blues area of Mississippi. Highway 61 Revisited peaked at No. 3 on the US Billboard 200 and No. 4 on the UK Albums Chart. Positively received on release, the album has since been described as one of Dylan's best works and among the greatest albums of all time, ranking No. 4 on Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Albums of All Time". It was voted No. 26 in the third edition of Colin Larkin's All Time Top 1000 Albums (2000) and was featured in Robert Dimery's 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die (2010). "Like a Rolling Stone" was a top-10 hit in several countries, and was listed at No. 1 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time list. Two other songs, "Desolation Row" and "Highway 61 Revisited", were listed at No. 187 and No. 373 respectively.

Now we're cooking with gas. This feels like Bob firing on all cylinders - the music is great, the lyrics are wonderfully elliptical, there's a pulse and electricity that runs through this collection - magic stuff. I can see why boomers get so heated under their wigs about Dylan. Highlight for me is 'Ballad of a Thin Man', but stick the needle down anywhere at random and you strike gold.

“Highway 61 Revisited” by Bob Dylan (1965) This album is widely regarded as one of the greatest albums of all time, for very good reason. It is. Bob Dylan’s poetry, both personal and prophetic, is set to music. But Dylan is careful to not let the music get in the way of the poetry, and that’s what makes it so hard for first time listeners to appreciate it. The only ‘hit’ on this record is the opening track, “Like a Rolling Stone”, but that says more about the people who define the ‘hits’ than it does about this album. The are many musical flaws here, from Dylan’s loopy, nasal, slurring, pitch-approximating voice with his sometimes laughably bad stylings, to Al Kooper’s amateurish rookie outing on organ (“Like a Rolling Stone”), to Mike Bloomfield’s painfully out of tune electric guitar (especially on “Queen Jane Approximately”), etc., etc. But the Columbia Records executives wisely let Dylan do his thing (even marketing an album with a monumentally uncommercial title). This could make you (and millions of others) hate this record. But you would be wrong. The album is the lyrics. They tell stories and weave images. They are ironic, humorous, piercing, counterintuitive, wide-angle, sometimes all of this at once, without being chaotic. They are highly referential, intelligent, evocative, and most importantly, they lead the listener to trust the poet, who embraces and expresses feelings and concerns that ring true in the listener’s soul. What the listener lacks in understanding, he makes up for in a certain compulsion to keep listening. Who hasn’t, at one time or another, felt the sneering mockery of “Like a Rolling Stone”? Who hasn’t had feelings of alienation, as in “Desolation Row”? Who hasn’t brooded over death while so much remains unexplained (“Tombstone Blues”)? What man hasn’t been grateful for plain old love from a woman (“From a Buick 6”)? Or felt like telling the woman you love to set aside what she wants and come to you for what she needs (“Queen Jane Approximately”)? You see, each of these songs is eminently relatable, inviting imaginative constructions to visualize Dylan’s little screenplays. And just when you think you’ve exhausted the visual possibilities of the song “Highway 61 Revisited”, listen to it one more time. Speaking of Highway 61, it helps to know that U.S. Route 61 is the old north-south artery from Minnesota to Louisiana, which intersected with east-west artery U.S. Route 66 at St. Louis, Missouri. It summarizes America. Westward expansion meets the struggle to unite a nation once divided by slavery. This the heart of the blues. Black people thinking, “Yeah, this ain’t slavery, but it still sucks.” White people thinking, “Yeah, I hear ya. Let’s experience this together, and maybe fix a thing or two.” The album is not about race. It’s about humanity. And Dylan is always aware of the background. The climax of “Desolation Row” (verse 9) reads: “Praise be to Nero’s Neptune The Titanic sails at dawn Everybody’s shouting “Which side are you on?” And Ezra Pound and T. S. Eliot Fighting in the captain’s tower While calypso singers laugh at them And fishermen hold flowers Between the windows of the sea Where lovely mermaids flow And nobody has to think too much About Desolation Row” Situational alienation and its preferred mode of expression (Pound vs. Eliot) become irrelevant at death’s doorstep. I’ve been thinking about that a lot lately. Dylan’s facial expression on the cover is a cross between “Yeah, what of it?” and Jesus’ look at the sad rich ruler (as I imagine Luke 18:24). I keep going back and forth. After listening to “Ballad of a Thin Man” for most of my life and being puzzled (along with others) over the identity of ‘Mr. Jones’, I think I have finally figured it out—It’s me. Highway 61 Revisited is an album that will do profound things to you, over and over again. 5/5

I like this more than I thought I would. I am glad that this album was selected instead of one of the folk albums, since I tend to not be a big fan of folk. "Like a Rolling Stone" is on this one, and it is the greatest song ever written, according to Rolling Stone (seems sus, but whatever). I'm more of a, "A Change is Gonna Come" guy myself. My personal enjoyment: 3/5 Did it belong on this list: 5/5

I really, really wanted to give Bob Dylan a fair shake, but by the time "Ballad of a Thin Man" hit its thirteenth fucking verse all of my goodwill was gone. We've all admitted that he can't sing for shit, but I am baffled by the claims that he's some great songwriter. Tiresome.

I'm a bit cold sitting next to my window and listening to Highway 61 Revisited by Bob Dylan. I'm not sure I have much add to many words dedicated to the career of Bob Dylan. I do enjoy this album, and have listened to it from start to finish many times over the years. It goes down easy and it makes me wish I had something artistic to contribute to the world. Bob just released a well reviewed album in his 80s I think, and it came out in 2020. Which is just a crazy thing to be doing when you get older. How does Bob Dylan even come up with an original song these days? Like the Beatles, he has been so influential, that you can hear them in so much popular music over the last 50 years. Maybe Bob doesn't listen to a lot of new music. Though I think there is a lot of great music to be found in all corners of the world. Anyway, this is not my goto Dylan album - but it's quite a milestone and I'm happy to hear it on this random Monday.

One of the greatest albums ever made. Dylan has shaken off the folkies and is now busy redefining pop/rock. Songs stretch way over the traditional 3 minute mark and Dylan spits his lyrics knowing that we were all trying to keep up and failing. Not a duff track on it. BT: Like A Rolling Stone, Tombstone Blues, Desolation Row

The lyrics are great but Dylan can't really sing. He just end ups half-screaming words and the music is pretty generic and grating (too much harmonica is a thing). The one star is entirely for Like a Rolling Stone.

The greatest songwriter of all time remade his image with this album, going electric for the first time in album format. It feels like you could write a thesis on each song, and probably somebody has, but they're also just a joy to kick back and absorb. This one will be high on my "Best of" list for sure. Best track: Like a Rolling Stone

Desolation Sound is my favourite song. I frequently play it on guitar and sing all the versus except one. The chords are simple, as they are in most of Bob’s tune, and the lyrics are among his most cryptic. I feel that if I sing a song like this I have to have something lucid to say if asked about the lyrics. So if someone says, for example, “why the fuck are Cinderella and Romeo in the same verse?” I can’t say that Romeo was out looking for Juliette, took the wrong turn at Albuquerque and ran into Cinderella. Fortunately, there is lots of good (and bad) analysis of these lyrics on the internet so rather than saying the nonsense about Albuquerque I can say that Cinderella is Stalin and Romeo is Hitler. Stalin kicked Hitler’s ass in Russia and at the end was the only one left to sweep up the mess. I don’t have a clue what the verse with Casanova and Phantom is about so that’s the verse I don’t sing. That’s a lot of verbiage dealing with the one acoustic song on the album best known for Dylan going electric. I don’t really get why so many were pissed that he went electric. Like a Rolling Stone is just barely electric. It’s not like anyone would mistake it for a Who song. The album is full of excellent songs and they are played with many different styles. Some bluesy and some country. I guess electrification was a new toy for Bob and he wanted to try lots of different styles. Every song on this album is excellent. Songs such as Rolling Stone, Ballad of a Thin Man and the title song have been my favourite song on the album at one time or another. Desolation Row will probably be my fave for the balance of this incarnation.

The genre is raggedy-ass beatnik blues rock, so progressive it’s being invented as it’s recorded. The only thing under full control is Dylan's voice. Outside that, the band careens around like a motorbike with a dodgy ticker, which is why everyone seems to think they’re playing lead. One second the drums are in charge, then the organ, then rhythm guitar, then someone hooks the harmonica up to the bike’s exhaust and gives it maximum revs. All while Dylan’s on stage with a stack of library books, ripping pages out at random and holding them up to a giant fan to send them flying over his audience at random. That's how we get Ezra Pound and T.S. Eliot fighting on the captain’s tower of a sinking Titanic. Jack the Ripper sitting at the head of the chamber of commerce. God pow-wowing with Abraham. It’s the ultimate high school reunion. Held together by glue that’s one part mystery and two parts the most voracious appetite for language in the history of recorded music, everything here is an outlaw song. ‘Like a Rolling Stone’ and ‘Queen Jane Approximately’ are directed at fallen women. ‘It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry’ and ‘From a Buick 6’ are roundabout love songs. ‘Highway 61 Revisited’ is the king of map songs. In Dylan's version of that grand tradition, the dark side of the American psyche is delineated by one of the country’s artery roads, where MLK was assassinated, Elvis lived, and Bessie Smith had her fatal crash. The siren whistle marks America as a circus of horrors. The drunk-driver rhythm signifies how wild and unsteady the country’s foundations are. ‘Ballad of a Thin Man’ trolls squares who try to force sense from nonsense. It’s eerie and unsettling, built on the shifting sands of a wild organ. And then there’s ‘Desolation Row’, where mystery and outlaw life come to a world-historic head. Against an improvised melody from guitarist Charlie McCoy that sounds like it's existed forever and shows no sign of stopping now, it’s thirteen-minutes of Dylan wrestling catch-as-catch-can with a crazy, unknowable world. Characters real and mythic are pitted against each other in an epic drama he wants no part of. He'd prefer to live on desolation row, the only place he feels there’s truth. That’s what this shakes down to—his aspiration to strip away everything so that he can reinvent himself again and again. To never be pinned down. If that means tearing up history, literature, language, and popular music in the process, so be it.

My favourite Dylan album as far as I've listened. Still got no idea what he's talking about but the cryptic style kind of lures you in after a while, almost to the point it makes you think you know what he's trying to say/tell you but then you think about it more and lose it again. I like the youthful/ earnest sound in his voice too. Desolation Row is such a great track and a perfect album closer.

Bob Dylan est extrêmement talentueux, cela va sans dire. Il chante incroyablement bien et joue de la guitare comme un dieu. Seulement, un énorme point noir se glisse dans la prestation de Dylan. En effet, Bob Dylan possède l'un des horcrux du générateur. Nous avions déjà découvert le premier horcrux du générateur à l'écoute de deux albums des Doors, avec le désormais célèbre orgue de Manzarek. Ici, c'est l'harmonica de Dylan que nosu croisons sur notre chemin. En effet, les horcrux du générateurs sont des objets qui, lorsque utilisés par leur possesseur, ont le pouvoir de détruire tout plaisir musical. Ici, l'harmonica de Dylan est absolument inaudible. Il vient nous fracasser les oreilles a de multiples reprises en fin de chanson, après de longues minutes de plaisir passées à écouter la voix de Bob Dylan avec sa seule guitare. Je tiens également à corriger par avance les potentiels commentaires me signalant que j'oublie un horcrux déjà rencontré: non, le portail de Nico n'est pas un horcrux, il s'agit d'un objet certes très puissant, mais bien loin de la puissance totale des deux objets sus-cités.

Contrairement à une idée répandue, Bob Dylan n'est pas un artiste solo mais bien un duo de musiciens. Il est composé d'un auteur-compositeur, Bob Dylan, et d'un interprète, à savoir son énorme pif. La relation entre les deux membres est pendant longtemps plutôt bonne, ceux-ci entretenant des rapports très cordiaux et professionnels, mais se détériore nettement au début des années 2020. D'un côté, Bob Dylan, profondément antivax, refuse de recevoir la moindre injection pendant que son proéminent tarin lui confie à maintes reprises sa réticence à l'idée de se faire traverser par un coton-tige tous les quatre matins. L'année 2021 marque la fin du duo. Une fin idiote pour un groupe qui a su marquer toute une génération.

Pretty incredible to me that an album that is closer to 60 years old than 50 is this prescient. The lyrical work is still top notch and very relevant and relatable. The blues rock deployed on the album is incredibly infectious and has some of the best energy of his canon. And lastly the album never has a real dip, it is incredibly solid from its insanely famous opener through to the last track. The quality is unrelenting, the brillance of Dylan on full display.

I don't listen to this album very often, but every song is a classic. Is it because they are that good, or because Dylan is the patient zero of smart rock and roll? This album in particular, where he has moved past folk and truly into rock and roll (this is his first all-rock record), really is a template for soooo much that comes afterwards. It is no surprise that Hendrix was obsessed with this record, and plays Like a rolling stone at Monterey to (re-)introduce himself to America. I love the immediacy of the playing, that really becomes a blueprint for so much rock to come. Recorded quickly, it has genuinely rocks, and the lyrics are still fresh all these years later. Fave tracks: tombstone blues, highway 61 revisited.

I've always loved Bruce Springsteen's take on 'Like A Rolling Stone,' of which he said "the snare drum that opens this song feels like someone kicked open the door to your mind." Yep. I can't really think of or write anything all that interesting about Bob Dylan or this album. I'll go with simple terms and state plainly that I view him as a literary treasure and this album is firmly established as one of the key works of art in my humble inner Pantheon. Now, back to the headphones to listen to this again with my eyes closed. I want to get the door to my mind kicked open.

I’m not sure how highly I should praise this album. It’s obviously a groundbreaking, legendary album that helped guide the course of rock history, but my style of listening to and enjoying music is to come to the albums in my collection with as much of a clear mind as I can. That is, I try not to bring meta considerations to my appreciation. I really can’t stand the “oh this is an important album” mindset. I don’t care if an album is important. I only care if I enjoy it. There are tons of “important” albums I either don’t care for or flat-out despise. So what about this gem? For it is a gem in my collection, no matter its place in rock history. It has such a strong beginning, of course, one that always leaves me stunned at how brutal it is, but for me, the closer is even stronger. “Desolation Row” is one of my favorite Dylan songs. Everything about it is beautifully ugly, and I find that paradox fascinating. And I love the little poetic flourishes that anchor the song as an image in my mind, like when Dylan sings, "Cinderella, she seems so easy, 'It takes one to know one,' she smiles, and puts her hands in her back pockets Bette Davis style." I also have a soft spot for sprawling, epic songs.

Highway 61 Revisited is a contender for Bob Dylan's greatest, and that is saying a lot. This is Dylan's first 'rock' album as it were, with Bringing it All Back Home having an acoustic half. The album is tinged with blues and country and runs the gamut from straightforward to experimental songs. Of course, this album is famous for what might be the greatest song ever recorded, 'Like a Rolling Stone.' The album is sprawling and far reaching in a way that only the greatest novels are.

Oh here it is, this is the one. The one that made me love Bob Dylan, probably my personal favorite. So, this is the 5th Bob Dylan album I've been asked to review. Not everyone will feel the same way, but I think these albums really are the music everyone should hear before they die. Dylan is a once in a lifetime kind of artist. His sensibility, his humor, his attitude, his lyrical virtuosity, they're burned across the musical landscape. They exist in some way in pretty much every kind of music that followed him. I get that he’s a polarizing artist. I get that some people find him grating. It’s not always about sounding pretty. Sometimes the truth is in the flaws. The lyrics really are a kind of poetry – bitter and biting, reflective but unsentimental, cryptic and sometimes straight up hilarious. The way Dylan can flip from irreverent to profound without giving us all tonal whiplash is a true gift very few artists have. Musically, the songs are evocative and flow effortlessly throughout. Some are also pretty fun when Dylan wants them to be. This album takes you on a gorgeous, rollicking, absurdist odyssey like no other. If you don’t “get” Dylan after this one, keep trying. Hands down, “Like a Rolling Stone” is the best song on the album, and a strong candidate for best rock song ever. The other songs are varying shades of brilliant, and hard to rank. Fave Songs (All songs in order, from most to least favorite): Like a Rolling Stone; Queen Jane Approximately; It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry; Tombstone Blues; Highway 61 Revisited; Desolation Blues; Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues; Ballad of a Thin Man; From a Buick 6

Books have been written about this album. It makes it very hard to say something interesting. You want my take? This is a document capturing a period of social and political history in the US of massive upheaval and a generational divide of such confusion and distance as to feel like foreign entities. Dylan moves from his folk past into a new rock sound and throws all the angst, distress, irony and idealism of youth into a cri du couer that is both humorous, memorable and moving. And whilst we might all spend days listening and analysing and disagreeing on the meaning of his poetry, no popular singer brought such depth to his music whilst also remaining listenable. And if the lyrics aren’t for you, check out the mood on Ballad of a Thin Man and Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues. This was an album of its time and an album for the ages.

Overall, just a good album front to back. Seems easy to just put on and let the hour drift by listening to the stories, lyrics, guitar, and harmonica. Rolling stone: classic. Ballad of a Thin man: so unsure of what this is about.. I think about people who sleepwalk through life and are unaware of what's going on. There really is a lot of disdain for the mysterious Mister Jones though Just like Tom Thumb's Blues: Well, unfortunately, this line stood the test of time "Because the cops don't need you and man they expect the same." Desolation Row: I really liked the guitar in this song, it had such a nice spanish guitar vibe to it

This is, in my opinion one of the best rock and roll albums of all time. And from when I first heard some of the songs on it about as a teenager 30+ years ago, it is still growing on me. It keeps giving, and I keep getting more out of it. That’s the thing about Dylan. There are untold layers and his body of work is a tapestry of art that is virtually unmatched in any artistic realm.

A couple of notes before I get into the review of this album, Bob Dylan has had an amazing career both in terms of creativity and influence due to the vast amount of artists that he has inspired and inspired to cover him. Additionally, I prefer the other take of "From a Buick 6". This album is pretty heavy on the harmonica which is nothing that we shouldn't expect to see from Bob Dylan at this point in his discography; however, the mix is a little heavy handed which I didn't notice on my vinyl copy, so it could just be the Spotify version of it. This album is also really heavy on story-telling and bluesy tones. You can really hear the box riff (I'm sure it has a proper name, but if you know what the box riff is, you know what I'm talking about), but that isn't to say that it gets too repetitive. My favorite aspects of this album come from those bluesy sounds and the stories told, specifically the stories in tracks 1, 5, 6, and 9. Bob Dylan has an incredible way of bringing a story to a song and these tracks really highlight them. It saddens me a bit that Dylan sold his discography to a big label for them to do whatever they want with it (and that may not be exactly correct), but it excites me that it could allow new artists to cover his songs and breathe some new life into them. Highlights: 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 9.

I'm familiar with a lot of Bob Dylan's music and have listened to this album before, but never closely. This is an absolute classic for a reason. Every track is anywhere between really good (e.g., Tombstone Blues, It Takes a Lot to Laugh, From a Buick 6, Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues) to absolutely classic (Like a Rolling Stone, Ballad of a Thin Man, Queen Jane Approximately, Highway 61 Revisited, Desolation Row). Pretty much a perfect album. Probably my only negative comment is that Desolation Row could be shorter - I don't mind long songs, but it's the exact same tune for over 11 minutes. That said, the lyrics are great, so in many ways it's just a long poem. I'd also say the siren whistle on Highway 61 is kind of dumb, but it's such a good song with such great lyrics, so who cares. Also, while I've said that Dylan's voice sometimes sounds like a parody of itself, I really liked his singing on this album. Again, an absolute classic and an easy 5.

It's Dylan at maybe his best? At the very least this is up there with the rest of his works as one of the best. The lyrics are pointed and hit, and Bob Dylan's maybe the only person who could sing them and make them work. On top of that, the songs are just plain good. Good melody, good instrumentals, good everything. There's a reason why Dylan is/was as influential as he is/was, and it's on display perfectly with this album.

Bob Dylan's 6th studio album and with rock musicians on 10 of the 11 tracks. He's gone electric which I guess was a big deal back in the day to some. Dylan was drained by touring and his current music; that's when he wrote "Like A Rolling Stone" which apparently changed his disposition and onward he went to make this landmark album. The title is named after the highway connecting his hometown, near Duluth, with the great musical heritage cities/areas of the south (St. Louis, Memphis, New Orleans, Mississippi Delta Blues Area). Connecting that reference, besides the first song, "Like A Rolling Stone," (maybe due to it being ingrained in my memory) and the last song (acoustic) "Desolation Row," this album really is a blues album to me. In fact, the songs kind of alternate up tempo and slower paced throughout. You can go a lot directions with highlights on this album: the music, the playing, the instruments used, the lyrics, etc., etc. The second song "Tombstone Blues" starts a fast- paced bluesy number with Dylan about contemporary Americans at the time and the Vietnam War. "Ballad of a Thin Man" is slower with piano and organ and lyrics about how being educated doesn't mean you know what's going on. The siren whistle says it all for "Highway 61 Revisted." "Desolation Row" concludes the album with a 11 minute long acoustic epic going all the place lyrically. He's obviously making political commentary. The album is consistently put among the best albums of all time. The one thing that stood out for me listening to it this time is how blues-oriented it is. That and being bookmarked by two classic songs does make for a great album.

Es fa difícil triar entre les tres obres que formen la trilogia màgica de Dylan a mitjans dels '60. 'Blonde on Blonde' és massa perfecta, però 'Highway 61 Revisited' no es queda lluny. Poques vegades, si és que hi ha alguna, un artista ha tingut tal nivell d'inspiració durant tres discos seguits

I've heard of this dude. Listen: It almost feels sacrilegious to rank this with any number below a 5. It kicks off with arguably the most ubiquitous, important song in rock and/or roll history. That opening snare shot alone, which Springsteen said sounded like "somebody'd kicked open the door to your mind", is enough to warrant a 5 rating. So I gave this entire album a few good listens, thinking it might confirm my off-the-cuff theory that it's overrated. I WANTED it to be overrated. But the thing is almost 60 years old now, and my word does it hold up. Even if it's not my favorite Dylan, it very well could be his best. I'm a bit disappointed to admit that it turns out this masterpiece by Dylan is indeed properly rated.

It might have been a brave and important step for a folk singer to use a rock band as backing… But ending on an 11 minute folk ballad? Dylan at his best! There are so many excellent tracks and Dylan’s storytelling is as good as it ever gets; “Ballad of a Thin Man” and “Desolation Row” being prime examples. If you rate Dylan-albums by the sheer volume of harmonica (and you should), this is quite good.

What can anyone say about 'Highway 61 Revisited' that hasn't been said countless times before? Dylan perfectly captures the cultural landscape of his homecountry and creates lyrics and music defining an entire generation while driving his own evolution into rock instrumentation. Even though Dylan was only 24(!!) years old when releasing Highway, he speaks as though he has been around for centuries with lyrical references to literary works spanning throughout the anthropocene. 'Like a Rolling Stone', 'Ballad of a Thin Man' and 'Desolation Row'. What more is there to say?

Highway 61 Pure perfection This was my soundtrack through high school, college, early 20s into my 30s. The perfect blend of lyrics, story telling, piano, keyboard, harmonica!, rock, and fucking roll! I always wanted to throw a dinner party and have people come as a Dylan character from Highway 61. The album is just so rich with personalities and I want to meet and hear everything them. How can I help you Queen Jane? I would love to hold the diplomat's (Andy Warhol) siamese cat! I'm obviously Miss Lonely. Dylan architects the perfect flow of songs and each song's opening notes simply stir my soul with comfort and peace. He taught me a great life lesson with this album and one I try to follow---"negativity don't pull you through." It's actually an 11 but 5 will have to do.

I am very familiar with Bob Dylan's work, and really enjoy his music, so I am looking forward to today's listen. This is the 6th studio album from Bob Dylan, and his first electric album (all songs except Desolation Row). Bob is one hell of a poet, spinning words together, that seem nonsensical at first, but when really thought about, take on a whole new meaning. You can tell he is a well read individual by his usage of different literary and historical references throughout his music. Bob really can't sing, and there are imperfections in the instrument playing, but I think that is done on purpose. It gives you a feel of listening to a live concert of some obscure up and coming band who isn't yet polished. I just feel it adds character to the songs. Overall, this was a phenomenal album, and going into listening to it, I didn't think anything could top Like a Rolling Stone for favourite song, but Tombstone Blues is so fantastic!! There is a reason this album is considered one of the best albums of all time! Every song on the record is amazing. Favourite songs: Tombstone Blues, Like a Rolling Stone, Desolation Row, Highway 61 Revisited, From a Buick 6, Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues Least favourite song: it forced to pick, Ballad of a Thin Man Easy 5/5

Finally! We're nearly 100 albums in, and this is our first from Bob Dylan (somehow still no Beatles). This opens with one of his best songs, and easily one of my favorite songs ever. I like the use of electrified rock instruments on here, and Dylan sounds great, but I don't think it's always the best fit. A couple swinging, dance-y rock and roll joints that seem a little odd. The slide whistle or whatever it is on the title track made me laugh, it sounds like a stupid radio show drop. It's a great album, but not my favorite style from Bobby D. I much prefer the rambling, stripped-back poetic songs (like "Desolation Row"). Still, most of it works, and it works really well. I could imagine this blowing my mind in the mid-'60s. Favorite tracks: Like a Rolling Stone, Desolation Row, Queen Jane Approximately, Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues. Album art: Gotta be iconic. I think that can be said for a handful of Dylan album covers. This is a great picture, very '60s. Maybe the coolest he's ever looked. 4.5/5

I was not expecting to like this album as much as I did. I may be a secret Bob Dylan fan. It made me laugh and think at the same time as Dewey Cox floated around in my head especially during Tombstone Blues which I loved. Like a Rolling Stone is also a classic but I was very surprised to see Desolation Row because My Chemical Romance or maybe just Gerard Way covered that song on the Watchmen soundtrack. Their version was only two or so minutes but this behemoth was almost 10 and I still loved it. I love seeing how young Bob is on the cover since he is still kicking to this day, like a rolling stone.

I've long suspected that, not unlike most of the Liverpool team, Bob Dylan is a souped up mega-nonce. This boy-hungry predator who can't sing or play harmonica, still manages to knock out a decent LP...presumably simply to lure in innocent children. For them, Highway 61 should never be revisited, for us it's fine.
