Dylan -  Indispensable Top 15

Conor Farrell "conor_farrell"
 
Bringing It All Back Home
Bringing It All Back Home
"Dylan's Finest! Perfect mix. Heartbreaking songwriting(Baby Blue, Tambourine Man)juxtaposed with searing street punk/rock n roll(Subterranean Homesick Blues)& High Art (It’s Allright Ma/Gates of Eden)"
Highway 61 Revisited
Highway 61 Revisited
"Possibly the finest Rock N Roll LP ever. Despite its iconic status it never spawned a movement of imitators. The Velvets can be imitated.  The Beatles can be imitated. This stuff cannot be imitated."
Blonde On Blonde
Blonde On Blonde
"Dylan does the impossible and actually successfully progresses what he started with Bringing It All Back Home & Highway 61.  “Blonde on Blonde” - the title says it all: This is pure Alchemy!"
The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan
The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan
"1st major artistic Statement by 1 of the Most Important songwriters in popular music.22 yr old Dylan draws deep from the Universal well of Inspiration to make some of the best American music on record"
Blood On The Tracks
Blood On The Tracks
"Dylan once said “pain brings out the best in people”.From the tender cry of ‘If you see her,say Hello’ to the pure venom of  Idiot Wind.There isn’t a wasted note here.This is a deep howl from the soul"
Desire
Desire
"Dylan reinvented as Minstrel Gypsy.Musically rich(helped by Scarlet Rivieras violin &Emmylou Harris harmonies).Lyrically exciting.Cinematic in scope.At times Mystical, mythical  & sensuous.A real Gem!"
John Wesley Harding
John Wesley Harding
"Often accredited with inventing Country Rock. Rubbish!Too crude a term for this genre defying masterpiece. It’s Biblical, Mythical, Apocalyptic–It’s the Wild West. Wonderfully complex & magical lyrics"
The Times They Are A-Changin'
The Times They Are A-Changin'
"A bleak meditation on The Times. The stark sound & urgent lyrics are so wonderfully & aptly reflected on the cover.A remarkable piece of writing & performance from a 22 yr old Dylan.Hugely Underrated!"
Another Side Of Bob Dylan
Another Side Of Bob Dylan
"Another Underrated Gem. A very charming, rather mixed bag. There’s lots of humour here mixed with some deep reflective work. Dylan reflects on the macro & micro levels of mankind and the self."
Oh Mercy
Oh Mercy
"His voice has matured beautifully & so have the songs. Recorded in New Orleans & produced by Daniel Lanois Oh Mercy is drenched in swampy atmosphere. His strongest & most consistent work since Desire."
Time Out of Mind
Time Out of Mind
"Not just a highlight of Dylan’s career but a highlight of 90’s music. From the smoky apocalyptic opening of Lovesick to the breathtaking centerpiece ‘Not Dark Yet’  - a poignant meditation on death."
Love And Theft
Love And Theft
"Steeped in Americana, bluegrass, swing, delta & hard edged blues, this album is hugely entertaining. Lyrically & musically rich & derivative, as the title suggests, for all the right reasons."
Modern Times
Modern Times
"A close relation to Love & Theft which delivers yet again. Ginsberg once observed that Dylan had become “identical with his breath” in the 60’s – witness this again on the majestic ‘Ain’t Talkin’."
Nashville Skyline
Nashville Skyline
"27mins of pure joyful country-a strong argument for less is more! Not political enough for critics/fans at the time but Dylan proves most beautifully that he was a ‘Song & Dance Man’ first & foremost."
Pat Garrett & Billy The Kid
Pat Garrett & Billy The Kid
"A gorgeous meditative soundtrack to Peckinpah’s motion picture of the same name. The tambourine in the blissful opening theme sets the pace beautifully like crickets chirping across Frontier America."
