I actually think Bringing it all Back Home is as good as Highway 61/Blonde on Blonde. He never had a run of songs in sequence than the last 4 songs on that album, Mr Tambourine man, Gates of Eden, It's alright ma and It's all over now Baby Blue. Mind blowing he released those 3 records in the space of 2 years.

Ya I think 'gates of Eden' and 'its all over now' are just as good as anything on those other two albums, in their own way. 'Gates of Eden' consists of some of his best lyrics in my opinion.

I agree completely. I prefer the album to Blonde on Blonde at this point. Highway 61 Revisited is much more consistent, though...although the final three songs are a really good run, too! I think Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues is actually one of my favorite Dylan songs...although I couldn't say exactly why. Just rustles up my emotions, I guess.

Blonde on Blonde has never really made much of an impression on me. It doesn't really have any of my favorite songs on it and it's long. I'll listen to it more though because it has a very enjoyable sound.

I'm gonna put Empire Burlesque through Oh Mercy on my ipod, so I'll try and listen to those soon. Finally get past all this 80s stuff!

You wont be disappoint with oh mercy. I've been listening to it a lot lately, it's a hell of an album. I'd probably put it in my top 10 Dylan albums. Listen to 'man in the long black coat' a few times. I skipped past it for a little bit but then one day it just hit me and I realized that it is a really good song. Such a dark, desolate sound to it. Great lyrics.

I picked up tempest today. It's not bad at all. One song that really stands out to me is "tin angel". The song has no chorus, it's just one long, continuous story. There is some really dark imagery in it. I'm really liking it.

I love that one too. That was definitely the song that got me to buy the album. They're both great.

I think 'Not Dark Yet' is one of his rawest songs. The music and lyrics are quite bone chilling actually. I liked 'Make you feel my love' before Adele butchered it, I can't stand over emotive singing she turned into a karaoke song.

Don't you just love the theory that Bob Dylan songs are only good when someone else sings them? Haha

I know. I like Hendrix Watchtower and Nick Cave did a decent cover of a song I forget but that's it. I can't stand all those Dylan songs turned into soppy ballads.

One of my favorite Dylan covers is Jeff tweedys cover of "simple twist of fate".

I would Recommend going to YouTube and searching "sixteen horsepower nobody Cept you". Can't think of the guys name but that was his bands name. It's a solo banjo performance of a great Dylan song. I'm really not very fond of the Dylan original, but I think this guy puts a lot of heart into it and does a great job.
