Don't care what the rankings say, this is a better album than Freewheelin'.

Bob Dylan didn't slow down after "Freewheelin'", and that's evident here. "The Times" is one of his greatest masterpieces, period.

Top Tracks: "The Times They Are A-Changin'", "With God On Our Side", "The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll"

Surprising but I think it's a little too political. Dylan's usually good with political stuff, but here it gets overbearing and detracts from the overall "musicality" of the album, I think.

This is the Bob Dylan I need right now. Liked Highway 61, not too different from this really, but listened to the start of Blonde on Blonde, couldn't stand it. This is the Bob Dylan I want.

Don't know why some critics claims It as being "too serious", I found one of Dylan's most consistent albums. Surely It don't have any laid-back moments like in "Freewheeling" or "Bringing It All Back Home" but I don't think it's a bad thing, in fact, It makes this album stand from other Dylan albums for being the most political one, and for containing the anthem "The Times They Are-A-Changin"

Forse l'album soffre un po' il paragone col disco precedente dove c'erano almeno cinque canzoni tra quelle che hanno fatto la storia ( e la Storia, pure ) mentre qua ce ne sono "solamente" tre...

this is my favourite album because the lyrics fit so perfectly with the mellow guitar-picking

From garycottier 04/02/2016 15:31
Bob's third album, and if there was ever a record in Dylan's career that deserved the protest album tag, this was it. This was Bob giving them what they wanted. The ills of society were what mattered here, and Dylan gives us it in droves, or at lest ten songs. It's a heavy album in terms of his lyrics, and though I really like the record, it's certainly not one of Dylan's most enjoyable long players. The title track off course is timeless, one of his best. I also like, when the ship comes in, which is of lighter tone than most everything else here. The lonesome death of Hattie Carroll, is one of the few protest songs from Dylan actually based on a true story. With God on our side, is one of his best from this period, and there are three nice ballads, one too many mornings, boots of Spanish leather, and, restless farewell, which is possibly Bob saying goodbye to protest music. It's a very good album overall, just not one for the Christmas party.
