There's not much to say about it really, Knockin On Heavens Door is a great song and it shows Dylan to be a good guitarist something that I never really paid attention to before. It's a good soundtrack, doesn't work as an album for obvious reasons even if it is entirely done by Dylan.
Favorite Lyric: "Mama, put my guns in the ground / I can't shoot them anymore / That long black cloud is comin' down / I feel like I'm knockin' on heaven's door."
Favorite Songs: Knockin' On Heavens Door, Final Theme, Billy 4, Main Title Theme, Billy 7
I may have to revisit the album as it's a great movie. One of Peckinpah's lost classics.

A cynic by experience, a romantic by inclination and now a hero by necessity.
