Default Dylan

"Then take me disappearin’ through the smoke rings of my mind
Down the foggy ruins of time, far past the frozen leaves
The haunted, frightened trees, out to the windy beach
Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free
Silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands
With all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves
Let me forget about today until tomorrow

Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
I’m not sleepy and there is no place I’m going to
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
In the jingle jangle morning I’ll come followin’ you."

Dylan and old times.

Good lyrics, but honestly...

I've never gotten the hype. I think there are much better songwriters than him.

The word legend is used far too much these days, but Dylan is a legend. One of if the the best lyricist ever and certainly one of the best songwriters of all time.

It makes me laugh when people say negative things about Dylans work, usually its metalheads who dont have the taste or class to understand him anyway. Definately one of the most important artists to ever exist.

Enjoyed this thread, interesting read.

Say whaaaaaa? Maybe I'm just an elitist prick, but this seems border-line blasphemous.

Dylan is pretty much the best as far as lyrics are concerned. Course, he had his duff moments, but you can't argue with something like "The Gates of Eden."

I'm posting his song The King of Spain and wondering what other Dylan fans think of his music.
Ah man, I'm really conflicted about Tallest Man on Earth. Listening to him I know his music is good and that I should be digging it, it's just through every song there's a little voice in the back of my head saying "he's trying to imitate Bob Dylan and no one can imitate Bob Dylan". His voice also seems like a Swede's interpretation of an American accent, and it just comes off as being cheap to me. I guess I view my problem with TME as a personal conflict, so no one take my criticism too personally haha

Also, I don't really like his lyrics either. I guess it's just because I'm always sizing him up with Dylan. That's another problem I have with this new indie-folk trend thats become popular. It's folk music with a lot of good musicians, but the lyrics just don't mean anything to me. It's folk music with pop lyrics, and folk and pop just don't really go together well.

Oh and nice work with the Dylan reviews. I'm always torn between deciding whether Blonde on Blonde or Blood on the Tracks is my favorite Dylan album. What does it for me on Blood on the Tracks is the storytelling. I mean, "Lily, Rosemary and The Jack of Hearts" tells a story that someone could write an entire novel about, same goes for "Tangled up in Blue". What does it for me on Blonde on Blonde is the poetry, e.g. "Visions of Johanna".

There's some pretty good Dylan covers around, but trying to make new dylan songs is tough, really tough.
Here, getting close:
YouTube - Mouse - "A Public Execution"
This song from 1965 actually sounds like dylan from a couple of years later.
Very nice.

Eitherway, I love Dylan. But there's some other good songwriters getting really, really close.
What about Nick Drake? And has anyone ever listened closely tot Al Stewart's album "Orange"? It's magical.

Down in the Groove (1988)


Rolling Stone called this Bob Dylan's worst album. These are the same dudes who have praised Nickelback and Fall Out Boy. That says everything you really need to know about this album.

The album is predictable, the arrangements borderline awful, and it suffers from typical Dylan circa 80s production issues. He didn't write most of the songs himself either. Death is Not the End is an okay song, easily the stand out on the album. The good news is, it gets better after this album.

This was a really sad way to revamp this thread to be honest, because now I really don't feel like listening to Dylan. This album is useless, I mean it's not offensive it's just so mediocre and even Dylan sounds like he doesn't give a fuck.

Okay Song: Death is Not the End
