HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWERon 7 August 2012
This 1973 release, the twelfth studio album from Bob Dylan, is somewhat of a mixed bag. As a soundtrack it was perfectly suited to the film it was written for, Sam Peckinpah's film of the same name as the album. The music suits the action, and the anthemic `Knocking on Heaven's Door' has just the right amount of doom laden fatalism to really give the end of the film a knockout punch. But listened to in isolation from the film it just doesn't work for me. `Knocking on Heaven's Door' is a classic song, and `Billy' has a nice mournful air and a particularly moving performance from Dylan. The rest of the album is, however, filler and does not work in isolation from the film.

Three stars only. It's not bad, and has some real high points, but it is not as consistently interesting or breathtaking as other albums in Dylan's canon.
