5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece., 29 Nov. 2005
This review is from: Bringing It All Back Home (Audio CD)
Bob Dylan? You've heart it all before. Rolling Stone this. Tangled Up In that. Great records, all, but what about Bringing It All Back Home?
Since purchasing this album, I'm found it to be an utter travesty that this is often so low down people's Dylan buyers' lists.
Firstly, there's the fantastic Subterranean Homesick Blues opening it all - the first strum on the record is an out-of-tune acoustic guitar. How Dylanesque is that? Furthermore, there's Maggie's Farm; an essential song, and Rage Against The Machine's amazing cover version is equally so.
My personal favourite is the utter bewildering - and bewildered, going on the false start - Bob Dylan's 115th Dream. It's a six minute adventure referencing mythology and American history as well as total surrealism ('they asked me for some collateral/so I pulled down my pants') that you never quite catch all the way.
Another highlight is the scalding It's Alright Ma (I'm Only Bleeding). Seven minutes of bile marking the end of his early protest phase, it has a cutting riff and lyrics like whiplash. It's brilliant.
Quite frankly, I'd place this higher up a Dylan shopping list than Blonde on Blonde or even Blood on the Tracks. It's utterly amazing.
