Red Flavored says:

I’m glad Bob Dylan went they way he did his songwriting got way better

Feargus Flanagan says:

good review, though a little too much focus on the first two tracks? throwing it out there that part one of Scorsese’s documentary on him highlights his early years extremely well, and the way it’s directed shows a perfect contrast during his change and the real hate he got for it. check a check a check it out

teppolundgren says:

I don’t find any of the songs depressing. In fact, I always feel that, no matter how bad things get in Dylan’s songs,
he’s always so humorous and witty that it’s almost like a comfort to listen to him. He can make anything seem light.

Matteo Scognamiglio says:

Before watching this video I thought to be the only one considering Tombstone Blues a proto-punk song! So happy that someone else has the same feeling listening to that track!

There are only 4 songs I can listen to on this album, 3 of which are just blues numbers, so he wasn’t breaking any ground there. Some of the lyrics are good but most of the music is awful. If you are a youngster puzzled because you can’t understand why an album like this is so lauded, my opinion is that the problem doesn’t lie with you, but rather with the sycophantic simplistic press with tin ears. Some of Dylan’s work (classic early period) is worth visiting but he’s also extremely overrated. Even Blonde on Blonde has a few good sounding songs and pretty good lyrics but it mostly sounds like utter shit.

I can’t believe this guy genuinely feels the way he does about this album and therefore I can’t respect him because he’s probably just brown-nosing Dylan to not distance himself from the bootlicking press.

whend you start writing your reviews? or have you always?

Lucas Garibaldi says:

Fantano is actually Mr. Jones

Charles Nelson says:

why would anyone give a single, solitary fuck what Dante Funtuneo thinks of a piece of art that was made half a century ago? His politics is suspect now…so is his critique.

Cyrus Garner says:

With your review of “Like a Rolling Stone” I think you are missing that the song is written in 2nd person. Which could be referring to a type of story but I think it’s just as valid to say he’s singing it to us. Meaning when Dylan sings “you” he is referring to you or me or the person reading this comment. Overall though I loved the review. I would like to see your review of Blonde on Blonde.

rick hunter says:

Dylan said in the “Don´t Look Back” documentary that a) he was tired of being pushed as the “communist threat” of the youth of america b) he was tired of the press and c) he was tired of other people making big hits out of his own songs in pop versions so the perfect way out of everything was to left the “protest-leftist” songs and branch himself into a broader music styles, be more like a versatile artist

Roland Ramirez says:

Mike Bloomfield.

starwars917 says:

Bob Dylan is an Asshole

borad39 says:

First time hearing your review. You may love Bob Dylan, however, I think your lack of experience in general makes you sound like a fool. Grow some pubes and then get back to us.

_19cct says:

15 mins yet no mention of mike bloomfield.
i want my time back.

i need a bitch to suck my dick

Anthony Baldini says:

This is where I disagree, man, especially on Tombstone Blues. That song calls out the worst characters roaming free in America at the time, you just have to open your eyes and ears to understand it. Ballad of a Thin Man really tears into a particular type of person, seeing as the particular person Dylan was putting down happens to exist in a lot of people (even during these days). Like a Rolling Stone’s an easy one. Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues is pretty much On the Road but in letter form…nothing fancy about the bagpipes that get blown into proportion on that song. Desolation Row is a good one…such a mighty sarcastic way to compare the misfortunes of the citizens of our society to the man who broke his doorknob by saying “Alright, you see all this shit happening on desolation row? Take it and wrap it up in tin foil, and if you can’t light it on fire, never speak to me again.” ‘Cause you know the asshole is not even going to bother to restock on tin foil…he hasn’t made a decent meal in weeks.

I’ve got nothing for Queen Jane, I don’t who the hell he’s supposed to be talking to, so I just enjoy it for his voice and the music and wherever my imagination takes me with the words.

So all in all, this might not be the straightforward style of his earlier records, but in terms of lyrical aggression and then-contemporary accuracy, he’s more on point than anything that came before (except for I Shall Be Free, Only a Pawn in Their Game, The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll, Gates of Eden, It’s Alright Ma, and It’s All Over Now Baby Blue). Masters of War is too general (pun intended).

Not An Uploader says:

Train-sition.

Owen Orsini says:

Tombstone Blues is my favorite song on the album

Alex Blood says:

11 minutes in and still no mention of Mike Bloomfield
‘increasingly irate’

Singularity says:

I don’t know if I’d call Ballad of a Thin Man “heartwrenching.” With the intensity Kooper’s organ part and the bizarre scenarios described, it always came across to me as more of a dark comedy

Dearly Band says:

You just made me fall in love with this album all over again.

The Corn says:

Review meet the beatles

Williamtipq says:

I dont like when people try to over categorize Dylan or what he’s doing. Overanalyzing it is dumb. Incredible writer.
