From this distance it's hard to imagine the shock this must have caused when it first came out. Dylan's first four albums (all big sellers) had been entirely acoustic; just Bob on vocals, guitar and harmonica. This opens with the pounding, very plugged-in 'rap' Subterranean Homesick Blues and all at once with this ultimate crossover song, intelligent rock, artistic rock was born. The opening scene of Dylan's documentary the same year (Don't Look Back) also used this song to make it the first song to have what we would now call a video. Dylan's lyrics here are perfect, half-way between the impassioned beliefs of his folk protests and the beautiful nonsense of much of Blonde on Blonde.
Love Minus Zero/ No Limit is still for me the perfect love song, and I challenge you not to be moved as the album slips out of the bluesy-rock boisterousness to the more thoughtful atmosphere of pared-down voice and guitar. It is this second half that really makes the album. It's as if Dylan has just been entertaining you for half-an-hour, sits down and says "Now. Let me show you what I can do." There can be few songs in his canon more bitter than It's Alright Ma, and few more tender than It's All Over Now, Baby Blue, both made from the simplest of ingredients.

BRINGING IT ALL BACK HOME is Dylan's fifth album, released in 1965. Commonly regarded as one of the most influential albums in rock history, BIABH is one of Dylan's most famous albums, and also one of his best.

By 1965, Bob Dylan had released four albums in the space of three years. The first was a traditional folk album with only two original songs. This was the proving grounds, for the market Dylan aiming for focused mostly on traditional material, not new song-writing The second was Dylan the song-writer, and proved to be one of the 1960s' most important albums. The third, Times They Are, featured Dylan the protest singer. The fourth was Another Side, which moved away from the protest-folk sing to a more surreal method of songwriting. For the protest-movement, it appeared for certain they were about to lose Dylan as a member of the movement.

When Dylan released BRINGING IT ALL BACK HOME, he made it quite clear that not only was he distancing himself from the whole protest-folk movement, he was plugging in and turning on. While in ensuing years this decision has become the stuff of rock and roll legend and mythology, it should be noted this was a tremendously risky direction at the time. If Dylan didn't have the material to back his decision, he could fall flat on his face and his career could be over. Dylan was making a gamble that he could transition to a new fanbase - a very difficult move to pull off for any pop star. Fortunately, Dylan not only had the songs to back his decision, he crafted some of the most enduring music in rock history.

Dylan went electric on this album, but only for half of it, leaving the second half as acoustic.

After owning this record and much of Dylan's other material from 62' - 76/7' for a few years now, Bringing It All Back Home is not only the Dylan album that appears most frequently in my record player, it is a CD which has become one of my most precious possessions. Blood On The Tracks, The Freewheelin', Blonde On Blonde and Highway 61 all take their place as the backbone of my collection, but i belive Dylan never topped his 1965 Bringing It All Back Home.
The Album was undoubtably a slap in the face to early Dylan loyalists - shocked to discover their idol employing an electric guitar, some thrashing drums (well almost), and a few energetic baselines. Furthermore, this record marks the birth of Dylan's abstract lyrics ('the lampost stands with folded arms') especially as it progresses.
It may also gain historical status for an album containing a fantastic progression. The composition, in rudimentary terms of the positioning of each number is quite remarkable. From the mumbling chaos of Subterranean Homesick Blues and the simplistic, untimely melody of Magie's Farm to the outstanding, warm, mind bendingly origional songs/lyrics of the likes of Gates of Eden, It's alright Ma & Baby Blue closing the record, it's a mind-boggeling beautiful creation, which is surely why ive felt so compelled to pen my first short review.
Finally the comedy of a couple of middle album tracks should probably have a mention. As most people know, Dylan can tell a powerful story in his song, but unlike much of his early (or later) protest tunes these are more comic, surreal and encapsulating. Once any of these tracks start up and conversation i hold with friends dies a quick detah and i'm forced to direct all my attention to the story and the poet. Great stuff.

I cant fault the album itself. Just hope it helps someone to point out that the vinyl version of this, released on Nov 2015, is actually the MONO recording, 180g, on Legacy Vinyl label from Sony. Nice quality reproduction of original sleeve and record. But as I was hoping for the stereo pressing, I returned mine. It's a shame Amazon don't show any details about this release, and that they don't filter their reviews into different formats.
