More than just a poet. He may not have the best voice, but he is a great songwriter and lyricist, and the folk music he popularised actually lends itself to the raw and humble sound of his voice. While solo artists such as Nick Drake and Cat Stevens went on to release brilliant folk albums of equally great musical and lyrical quality, but alongside more impressive singing, it was Dylan who opened doors for many of those artists. Best album is Blood On The Tracks, but there are many others which belong among the greatest albums ever released.

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)
