Here, Dylan went from being a folk singer to a rock star. This is the genius, the civil rights fighter, the poet, the Dylan at his great "61" year of '65 when "Bringing It All Back Home" had already, earlier that year, turned him electric in an (i)literate sense.

Having already cemented himself as a great folk artist, here Dylan once again showed the world how much cynicism can be brought to a vocal and musical performance, a trajectory of the times. It is executed clearly and with maximal emotional output.

"Like A Rolling Stone" is one of my favorite songs for Al Kooper's enigmatic organ riff, Dylan's vocals (that in my opinion are his best ever on this track) - a revolution in sound, really.

A truly great album. Still sounds as fresh and relevant as the day it was released.

I don't think it's a stretch to call Highway 61 the best album in rock.

"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.
