"Desolation Row" is one of the greatest songs ever written.

The second album in the trilogy of his "thin wild mercury sound" period; the others are Bringing it all back home and Blonde on Blonde. Even if Like a Rolling stone is rock's greatest moment ever, I judge Blonde on Blonde slightly above this album. Bob gave rock music credibility with his poetic writings, and with him Rock-music became adult and mattered as a serious artform

Desolation Row alone makes this album great. Like a Rolling Stone is widely regarded as one of the greatest songs ever, and I agree. Highway 61 Revisited, Ballad of Thin Man, are two other great songs. Listen to the lyrics. Other songwriters probably feel like simpletons when they listen to the lyrics on this album. This was Dylan's first album backed by a full band on all songs, except for Desolation Row. Dylan had started to leave the folkie-acoustic world for more of rock sound on his previous album, Bringing It All Back Home, which is also great.

The best Dylan album for me slightly above Blond On Blonde, Blood On The Tracks, Freewheelin & Time Out of Mind. The greatest rock n roll song all time on most critics lists "Like A Rolling Stone" the majestic "Desolation Row", "Highway 61" boogie rocker number. Love the lyrics & tempo of "Tombstone Blues". 2 other favs "Queen Jane" & "Just Like Tom Thumbs Blues", the fantastic "Ballad Of A Thin Man" . The Two tracks I like lesser are "It Takes A Train..." & "From A Buick..." but their solid. A Masterpiece!! Around this time the Beatles, Stones, Dead, Airplane Cash on & on were always eargerly anticpating what Dylan was going to come up with next. So very telling & high praise barometer. MEZ^

Quite simply; some of the best song writing and singing of all time. It's impossible to fathom that a single person can write this good. "Desolation Row" alone is so good that if it comprised the whole album I'd still be calling it one of my favorites. Add in "Like a Rolling Stone", "Ballad for a Thin Man", AND "Tombstone Blues" and you have an album that transcends simple good/bad criticism. Listening to Dylan sing reminds me of what music can achieve even without the bells and whistles of prog rock (and I LOVE prog rock). Take away the instrumentals and if the only thing that remained was Dylan's vocals it would still retain it's power.

Like a Rolling Stone is easily one of my 5 favourite songs of all time. You put a classic like that on an album with songs like Tombstone Blues, Highway 61 and Queen Jane Approximately...and you easily have one of the greatest albums of all time.
