my fave Dylan album at the moment is Shot of Love - rest are overplayed - haven't gotten to the rest of the "sh*t" albums yet

Blonde On Blonde is certainly one of the best albums of all time and without a doubt the best Dylan album, in my opinion anyway. Although he has released some pretty **** stuff too. Overall, a legend.

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
^ Is basically how I feel about the album. Not that I've listened to it more than a couple of times (as I really don't feel the need to!), but it's just such a tired, plodding and by-the-numbers album. Barely worth the effort really. I don't hate it as much as Knocked Out Loaded or Shot Of Love, but it's still pretty damn awful.

I'll be keeping an eye out for your updates. I'm a big Oh Mercy fan, and Time Out Of Mind is my favourite Dylan album, so it'll be interesting to see your take on the both of them.

I saw Dylan live earlier this year, when he was being announced the announcer said something like this: "The poet laureate whose career dissipated in the eighties due to substance abuse."

It was quite funny.

This is my first ever post and I had to start by commenting on Dylan.
I adore him and like too many of his albums.
I have always preferred his electric albums, which seemed to me more non-conformist than the supposedly political folk ones. Maggie's Farm is a good example of a very political song.
But lately I am really enjoying the album Another Side of Bob Dylan.

Bob Dylan was a terrible singer, but he was one of the best poets of his century.

No man, he wasn't terrible at all. It's an acquired taste probably, like good wine and Scotch.
Just play "Blowin' in the Wind" or "Just like a Woman' and you can still hear the brilliance.
