I like Highway 61 more, but Blonde on Blonde is really good. On Highway 61, there are just so many good songs and no bad or boring or even mediocre ones.

Personally my favorite on Highway 61 is Queen Jane Approximately

I find the Alicia Keys reference on that album funny.

Bob Dylan has a thing for women of the darker complexion. Listen to Spanish Harlem Incident if ye doubt my claim!

Yeah, I've always thought that line was odd. Awesome, awesome song, though.

"There are two kinds of rock and roll that are artistically bankrupt to me. One's the wimpy, "fuck me, I'm sensitive" Jackson Browne school of seduction, and the other is "Look at me, I've got a hairy chest and a big willy!" Led Zeppelin type."
We'll count this as my vote against Costello.

Dylan's through, tied with The Clash for the most positive votes but he only received 3 negatives!

Up next from the shizz Jackhammer

Pink Floyd




I could go into huge detail about this band but almost everybody knows who they are and probably own something by them. They have spent a staggering 700+ weeks on the billboard charts but ask the average joe what they look like and they wouldn't have a clue. They have never thrust their politics down anyones throat and are notoriously media wary.

Their album covers alone are works of art and for better or worse they have been instrumental in pushing production quality to the max.

Piper At The Gates Of Dawn is better than Sgt. Peppers (released in the same year) with the opening track still sounding extraordinary after 40 years.

David Gilmour is a superlative guitarist and Roger Waters was a brilliant lyricist. Syd Barrett's influence is still heard today in guitar based pop music. Oh and David Gilmour sold one of his houses a few years ago and gave all the money to shelter- a homeless charity (a cool £million+), a fact little known because he didn't big himself up for it. Vote them in. you know you want to.
