Awesome and thanks. I'll look for all those albums in my future record store runs. Dylan's huge discography is very intimidating but I'm guessing I can pass on most of it.

Most of the time I hear Bob Dylan I think of Simon & Garfunkel, but I suppose that's just because I listened to them in the wrong order!

They are great. Paul simon is a great songwriter. I've just always been more of a Dylan fan.

Simon & Garfunkel were one of the first artists I really got into, so beating them will be tough for me.

I look forward to getting my Bob Dylan boxset and locking myself in my room for a few days! I'm sure I'll be back here to talk about the experience.

Haha keep me updated. I came across Dylan in a really rough time in my life, although I had heard him before, his music started speaking to me like nothing ever had before. It changed my life. I remember the first time I heard him, I said "what is that crap?" Haha. Bob isn't always going to sound good to the ear at first, you have to look beneath the surface to really appreciate his music.

What do you think about them?
As far as Christian rock albums go, I think they're stellar,. But yeah, as far as Dylan albums as a whole go they're slightly less than mediocre. I do love the sound that Jerry Wexler and The Muscle Shoals Horns managed to produce on Slow Train Coming. Saved is easily the lesser of the two albums and I'll admit I only heard it enough times to know that I don't care for it. Iy was a very brief, but interesting segment of Dylan's career, considering that he became a born again Christian long enough to kick heroin and put out two christian albums. There's a very lengthy and obscure documentary that was made regarding this period of Dylan's life almost exclusively. I can't remember the name to save the life of me, but it was very good.

Really? I would like to see that documentary. I agree, compared to his other albums, they aren't that great. But, Slow Train Coming isn't bad at all. I never thought of it as a Christian rock album , when I look at it like that, it's a great album.

It's called Rolling Thunder and the Gospel Years and it's 240 minutes long.
