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.

Let alone the instrumentation, even at a young age I understood that this was songwriting like I had never heard it before.Bob Dylan's writing feels like a painted canvas. This will always be one of my favorites.

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.
