One of the most prolific/greatest songwriters of our time. His performances are much lacking though. Just Like A Woman is possibly my favorite performances of his. I love his working class/socialist album These Times Are A Changin', but I find possibly as high as 70% of his music unbearable. He released A LOT of music, and maybe 30% of it is great.

The magnitude of Dylan's catalog from '62-76 is unreal. So many legendary albums, songs, lyrics, stories, moments, memories... From there, not everything Dylan offered was as good, but he found his form again in the late 90's.

Overall, the amount of artists in Dylan's league are very few.

I'm always interested in what Dylan did. Even his lesser records are worthwhile, 'cause it's interesting to hear how low a great artist can get. When you fly high, you can fall deep.

One of the greatest lyricist and songwriter ever, songs like Hurricane, Like a Rolling Stone and Blowin'in the Wind are the essence of music.

The greatest lyricist of all time, hands down. My favorite music artist ever. Bringing It All Back Home, Blonde on Blonde and Highway 61 Revisited are among some of the best albums I've ever heard by any music artist. Bob is a true legend.

Incredible highs (Blonde on Blonde, Blood On The Tracks, a collection of his lyrics, his autobiography "Chronicles Vol.1") but also boring lows (e.g. most of his concerts since 40 years)

From JasonZaia 02/11/2015 14:41
Personally, I would say that Dylan's infamous 80's period contains just as strong song writing as any other period in his long career. The big difference with this decade though, is the production. We all know there was a lot of pressure on artists to conform to the newest trends - those being the frequented use of computers, drum machines, synthesizers, etc. The use of these tools in the studio - though benefiting other artists of the decade - was not a strong suit to Dylan's music. A raw, personal, more heartfelt sound has always been his home. And though he eventually learnt to use the 80's sound to a lesser degree with 'Oh Mercy! (1989) - proving to be quite successful - it was really only a matter of time till he returned to his true, talent showing production, as used on 'Time Out of Mind' - as well as his subsequent albums.

I feel this theory of mine is best proven when looking back on the tracks that somehow managed to escape the '80's sound'. And none managed this moreso than his belated release of the apparent "demo" of 'Blind Willie Mctell' - a true revelation of Dylan's continual song writing talent, well throughout the 80's, and beyond.

In conclusion, Dylan's infamous 80's period, is not a bad period. Not at all. Rather, it is a badly produced period - in a most unflattering way. And personally, I think Dylan should return to the studio from whence those albums came, and redeem them.
