Blues, lyrics, energy, all representative of 60s Dylan in one place.

Dylan's most surreal album for sure. To me, it feels like too much; the imagery, wordplay, and ambiguity pile up and spill over into meaninglessness. His songs are no longer about anything. The electric backing band provides unnecessary maximalism that just serves to highlight, not add to, the simplicity of what should be folk songs.

Not only was Dylan on totally flawless form both lyrically and compositionally by this album, it also marked the beginning of some more ambitious - and at the time - genre bending instrumentation. Dylan is unmatched in his control of words and music together, able to provoke such strong emotion with such ease.
