I'm not much of a Dylan fan. This album I groundbreaking, obviously. But I'm pretty sure he's just not my style. His words are very good! But, all the songs are too similar, and usually too long, and overly political. I understand that he is a visionary and musical legend, but I just can't get behind 6 minute long acoustic guitar and harmonica dominated tracks.
Excepting his lyrics, he hasn't impressed me yet.

Best Songs: Tombstone Blues, Ballad of a Thin Man, Desolation Row.
Worst: It Takes A Lot To Laugh, Highway 61 Revisited.

A truly great album. The lyrics might be some of the best ever written, from the nuanced story telling of Like a Rolling Stone, to the clever nonsense of Tombestone Blues and the title track. Has some hidden gems too like It Takes a lot to Laugh and Tom Thumb's Blues

I started going through Rolling Stone Magazine's top 500 albums. All I can say is wow. I've fallen in love with Dylan. This album is amazing. I've always known "Like a Rolling Stone" but there's so many more great songs on here. Personal favorite include Like a Rolling Stone, Ballad of a thin Man, Queen Jane Approximately, Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues and Desolation Row.

I'm neutral when it comes to songs like It Takes A Lot To Laugh and From A Buick 6, but the fact that this album contains Like A Rolling Stone, Desolation Row and Ballad of a Thin Man is enough to make it one of the very best albums of all tine. Queen Jane Approximately and Tombstone Blues are both brilliant as well.

The best Bob Dylan album not a bad track here. It hasn't aged that much either some of the songs are classics Like A Rolling Stone, Tomb Stone Blues & Ballad Of a Thin Man being examples. This is the album Dylan first went electric with and it was a big departure at the time and didn't please all his fans but over the years he has been proven right it was the right way to proceed, the final track Desolation Row is acoustic. The album has so many good tracks it is hard to single out any but my personal favourites are Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues & Tomb Stone Blues.

My personal favorite Dylan record. There is a sound to it so distinctive and so perfect. And as with any Dylan, the lyrics are top notch.

Dylan ran his own genre here, filled with the maximum sophistication a rock artist could ever reach, it really differs from everything soundwise lyrically and even in the way he sings the guy is the real deal the definetive rock n roll star

A perfect Dylan album, has everything you could ever want in a album. Iconic opener, sureal beautiful closer and great tracks in between.
From a Buick 6 and the tittle track are the only 2 slightly weaker songs, the rest is all top quality stuff from Dylan. Tied with Blood On The Tracks for best Dylan record.
