Bob Dylan is actually the best folk artist in rock history. He is also one of the first rock artists to have released a double album with Frank Zappa. This album is called "Blonde On Blonde" and is simply the most ambitious album of Dylan's extraordinary discography. This album is an incredible masterpiece. It would probably be in my list of the 10 most essential rock albums. Dylan is actually my favorite songwriter. It is impossible to love Dylan without loving "Blonde On Blonde", IMPOSSIBLE! The 73 minutes of the album are exceptional and never tired. Worship of the cult.

10/10

Best track: "Sad Eyed Lady Of The Lowlands"

Dylan is a relatively new artist that I've gotten into. I knew his classics growing up but always thought he was overrated and paled in comparison to the artists I thought were truly classic(Beatles, Zeppelin, Springsteen). While I still hold that I put him below those artists, he's really grown on me. This album specifically. Rainy Day Women is a challenging opener and may turn a lot of people off, but if you stick with it you start to understand what he was going for with this album. Its his Epic. Everything that is good about Dylan can be found to some degree. There are silly-fun tracks, emotionally charged ballads, and classic rock songs that stand the test of time. If you are looking for one album to pick from his discography to get into, start here. Also home to Dylan's best song,Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands

Great album with some very beautiful moments like One Of Us Must Know and Just Like a Woman paired with some hard blues too like Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat and Pledging My Time. One of my favourite albums.

A great double album and one of his best albums from the 60's. Rainy Day Women, One Of Us Must Know, I Want You, Temporary Like Achilles & 4th Time Around stand out for me but by far the best tracks are Just Like A Woman and the sprawling Sad Eyed Lady ..... a brilliant album.

The album overall is fantastic and I find it a milestone in the Dylan and the american folk rock genre. Still, what I think BLO meant, which I agree, is that if you took away 4-5 of the songs (I have) then the album would be classic after classic.

I tried to understand this album, I couldn't. Bob Dylan is strange to me, some of his albums I just can't get, this and "Time out of Mind" are really difficult to me to listen to. But from what I can reach It is still a great album, being "Visions of Johanna" a great piece of lyricism.

Highway 61 is a madcap explosion that feels like a party bursting at the seams. Blonde on Blonde is the morning after that party. With some of Dylan's best ever lyrics, he takes more of internal reflection than in his previous work, and creates a melodic epic that explores love, loss, light, darkness, comedy and tragedy. Truly one you should not skip over.

While this is one of Dylan's best albums, I don't believe it quite lives up to the expectations that have been built around it. It has many great, fun ballads to enjoy and several sweet tracks that bring a smile to your face, but it also has some lesser tracks and clocking in at 74 minutes it is a tad overlong.

I wouldn't call this my favourite Dylan album, I wouldn't even call it my favourite of his electric albums, but it is great and fun to dip into, just don't listen to it all the way through too often.

Dylan's sweetest collection of songs. Could be shorter though.
