Dylan ran his own genre here, filled with the maximum sophistication a rock artist could ever reach, it really differs from everything soundwise lyrically and even in the way he sings the guy is the real deal the definetive rock n roll star

A perfect Dylan album, has everything you could ever want in a album. Iconic opener, sureal beautiful closer and great tracks in between.
From a Buick 6 and the tittle track are the only 2 slightly weaker songs, the rest is all top quality stuff from Dylan. Tied with Blood On The Tracks for best Dylan record.

The Sun's not yellow - it's chicken!

On Highway 61 Revisited, Bob Dylan took a huge risk by adding electric guitars and a full band to the mix. Despite being booed after an electric performance, he still went on to record this album with a full band. That takes a lot of guts and is a very high risk to take, but Bob Dylan took it and was rewarded highly. But the real winners are anyone who gets to hear this album. From start to finish it is beautiful. Dylan's voice is so haunting in tracks like Ballad of a Thin Man. His lyricism stands out to me. He tells stories so poetically and creates characters within these poetic stories that feel real, alive, and relevant. He is witty and smart with these lyrics. The addition of a full band is fantastic as well, as each instrument gets many chances to shine through well. The standout is always the guitar playing. Highway 61 Revisited is full of classic, memorable riffs. It is a great listen and one of the best albums of all time.

It's an artistic statement for sure, but besides a few songs, it's nothing particularly fresh. Most of it is folky, unrecognizable sound which, while his electric move might attract new fans, his vocals will push them away. Tombstone Blues is a good song in its own right, but it's the only truly folky song that stands out. Two songs on the album, however, are almost transcendental and carry the hell out of not only the album but folk in general: Desolation Row and Like a Rolling Stone. The former is quite possibly the most poetic and intelligent anyone has ever been in a song, and the latter is the biggest milestone in rock history if not all of music.

Key Cuts: Tombstone Blues, Desolation Row, Like a Rolling Stone

One of the first 60s albums I fell in love with. The first two tracks open the album better than most others I can think of

Just perfect. So full of life.

It sounds as jazz 50s records sound: the atmosphere of a live act making music on the very moment they're been recorded.

10/10
