5.0 out of 5 stars
Lets go on a Bear Mountain Picnic!, 24 July 2002
Written in that mysterious period after the motorcycle accident, this album can be classed as Dylans last great masterpiece until 'Blood on the Tracks' almost 7 years later. The sound is of a Dylan far more at ease with himself after the choas and confusion of the 'Blonde on Blonde' period. The quality of the album is often overshadowed by 'All along the watchtower' which grew out of the album after the famous (and phenomenaly brilliant) Hendrix cover.
However songs like 'Dear Landlord', As i went out one Morning' and the brilliant 'Ballad of Frankie lee and Judas Priest' are fine examples as to why there is no rating system that can do justice to Dylan at his best.
How many stars? All the ones in the sky mate!
