  • Yeah, that one is kind of similar. This is a very special album, though, I think. Something I've really come to appreciate is music that is "out of time," meaning it doesn't sound like it's from any particular time either sonically or topically. The Band's 1969 album (and Music from Big Pink to a slightly lesser extent) has that quality and this record has it too. I think it's a really beautiful album with top-notch songwriting, crystal clear production, terrific harmonica playing and some of Bob's best lyrics.
  • I almost agree with you about this being "the only album he made like this," MisterJunior, except that Under the Red Sky is close kin, in spirit and conception if not in sound. People overlook it but it rewards time and close attention.

  • My long-standing favorite Dylan album. Gone is the overly clever/contrived wordplay that in my view marred some of his earlier albums; in its place are some concise but literate, superficially simple but surprisingly complex/ambiguous lyrics, and instead of the kind of samey blues rock type songs he filled out some of his electric period albums with, he's turning out an encyclopedia of songs in various folk and country forms. Stuff like "All Along the Watchtower" (of course), "As I Went Out One Morning," the title song, and "Drifter's Escape" just blows me away. It's unfortunate that this album basically stands on its own as an era unto itself because this was just a wonderful sound and vibe for Dylan, but the other way of looking at it is that because it's the only album he made like this it's all the more special as a result.
  • Chumsicles, indeed! Drum parts too.
  • some of the best basslines in all of folk music
  • One of his best :)
  • The Dylan equivalent of a 60's black and white Eastern European art film.
  • Classic, classic, classic. It might be my favourite.
