Probably Dylan's most important and significant artistic statement. Highway 61, is where he goes completely electric. Even though, blonde on blonde, is my personal favourite Dylan album, this record is surely his most influential. The opening track off course is one of the greatest songs in popular music, a strawberry fields forever, a, bohemian rhapsody, a, smells like teen spirit, where nothing would ever be the same again. It's stunning. Tombstone blues, is another favourite of mine, 'the Sun's not yellow, it's chicken ', fantastic. You can't really say there's a weak track here, although if I had to be picky, I would say, queen Jane approximately, is not quite up there with the rest of the songs, and yes, I do think, desolation row, is one of those tracks I have to be in the right mood to completely enjoy. But these are just minor personal quibbles, it takes nothing away from the genius of this album. Lyrically, he is way ahead of his contemporaries. The Beatles released the, help!, album, at the same time as Dylan released highway 61, and although the rolling stones were starting to use social commentary in their songs with their, satisfaction, single, they're still light years behind Dylan. In reality, did anyone really catch up? Highway 61 revisited, excellent.

Dylan plugged in at the right time. Like A Rolling Stone is a classic along with Ballad of a Thin Man, Queen Jane Approximately, and Desolation Row. Tombstone Blues is electric. No weak tracks.

Dylan was at the rising of his lyrics, individuality, music that was more bright with more guitars and keyboards. Great.

A rock record that makes you think. Insightful, ironic and more than a little bitter. Thank you Bob for putting into music and words what a many a generation cannot.

Great album by a great artist. Disregard Like A Rolling Stone for a moment (which in itself makes this album a must) but there are other classics like Tombstone Blues with my favorite Dylan line of all time "The sun's not yellow, it's chicken," Highway 61 Revisited, and Desolation Row.
Whether you like, dislike, hate or love Dylan, this album is a must.
The great organ parts by Al Kooper, who didn't even know how to play organ, he thought he would play guitar until he heard Michael Bloomfield. Great album
