Could not agree more with what Rufus has to say. Dylan is an acquired taste but one that will leave you questioning where he had been all of your life.

Highway 61 has been called many things, a lot of which are true. Pound for pound this album can go toe to toe with so many other albums in the top 20 and Like A Rolling Stone might get my vote for best song ever written. Only, I personally like Blonde on Blonde a tiny bit more.

I'm a late arrival to Bob Dylan's music. Like a lot of people my age, I couldn't get past his style and never gave him a chance. That all has changed, and now that I actually listen to what he is saying, I am flat out blown away. To say this record is genius would be putting it mildly, and that's already been said by millions who've had the privilege of listening to it for decades. I envy them.

This is obviously an important and iconic record. Not my favorite, but I definitely dig a lot of what is happening here.

Nothing short of a masterpiece. A pivotal moment in my listening experience when I first heard it, as many of Dylan's albums have been. I can only imagine the cultural and social impact this album had upon release. The lyricism is like nothing I've heard before, it doesn't sound like anything Dylan did before or after and the themes and cryptic wordplay have well and truly stood the test of time. I can't do the album justice in a review so I won't try!

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.
