^ Yes, I have that same problem with a lot of Dylan too, but regardless of that, it`s time to re-invite people to discuss Dylan`s latest effort by voting in this poll:-

I`d like to extend a welcome - and my admiration - to crazyaga; a new guy, who comes into a thread with about 600 posts in praise of Dylan, and straight off uses the word "boring" !!

I forgot how great Desire is. I often thought of it being shallow songs with a few gems, but even the less important songs are very pleasant and aren't nearly as empty as I thought they were. Even 'Joey' was better than I remembered it being but, sorry Howard, the chorus still kills me.

Desire is such a great album.

Just got back from seeing Mr. Dylan in concert. It started out great with mark knopfler opening. Then he came out and played with Dylan for a couple tunes. Did some guitar playing in "girl from the north country" which was really good. Best songs of the night for me were "tangled up in blue", "lovesick" and "all along the watchtower". He played "blowin in the wind", "ballad of a thin man", "hard rains a gonna fall", "like a rolling stone", "things have changed". A few new songs as well.

He spent most of the night on the piano. He would go to the front of the stage, sing and play harmonica every now and then. He surprisingly could hold some notes and stretch his voice out a lot better than I expected. It was great.

I've seen him twice and this show definitely takes th cake, but that probably has something to do with me sitting fifth row this time.

Man, this sounds awesome. I've never really gotten into live music before but hearing stuff like this makes me want to give it a go. At least see Dylan before he stops touring for whatever reasons.

I finally got a vinyl copy of Blood on the Tracks today. It sounds very nice but I haven't sat down and really focused on the lyrics yet so I don't think I get it quite yet. I like it, though.

Also, Under the Red Sky was so boring I stopped halfway through. So yeah, I'm skipping ahead to the next album...

It's not just the lyrics to pay attention to when you listen to Blood on the Tracks. The music is great as well. Just about every song from that album is great. "idiot wind" does have some great lyrics, maybe the best on the album. They're all pretty good.

Can someone explain to me what kind of folk music Bob Dylan is? American folk music is country, blues, bluegrass and some jazz (at least that's what I have been told), but he doesn't seem to fit into any of them. I'm really confused...

I just assume you categorize Dylan's work as contemporary American folk and call it a day. He takes cues from different kinds of older traditional folk music but really most of his work isn't just like any of them exactly. Then again, I don't know a ton about folk as a genre so perhaps I'm not correct.
