Bob is at his best. This absolute perfect album has become a piece of Americana that will never be forgotten.

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

Good album, but i can't get access of the maestry sound of this.

For me, "Ballad of Thin Man" is much better than "Like a Rolling Stone".

Art rock at its finest. This is some of the best songwriting you will find. Like a Rolling Stone changed my life when I first heard it.

Dylan could have sang anything and got away with it. Certainly the Ginsberg connection worked brilliantly on this masterpiece. Dylan's genius really came more well known because of this album.

This entire album feels like Bob Dylan saying "F@$# IT" and its perfect. You see, leading up to this album, Dylan had begun to move away from his folk roots and embrace with rock sonically in his music, but this made many of his original fans furious at their beloved folk singer turning into a Rock Star of all things. Yet Dylan choose to embrace it with a wink and a grin on this album. From the opening track, Like A Rolling Stone, Dylan demonstrates that he has the chops to go toe to toe with any Rock artist, and he ends up creating one of the greatest songs not only in Rock, but of all time. Dylan then continues throughout the whole album to show how to make a perfect balance of masterful folk writing paired with an eclectic range of moving and flat out entertaining instrumentation: from the guitar to the harmonica to the piano to a police siren, Dylan truly did what we wanted on this album, not necessarily what his fans wanted. However, in Retrospective, Dylan knew best as he left the world with a groundbreaking and flawless album that inspired generations of songwriters.
Best Tracks: Like a Rolling Stone, It Takes a lot to Laugh It Takes a Train to Cry, Desolation Row
