A wonderful album. I never tire of hearing it. Seems like I always pick up on some new vibe in each playing. Dylan's best, out of a fistful of excellent works. Desolation Row is my favorite. What lyrics!

Bob Dylan is my favorite singer: his voice is perfect, his lyrics are very very well written and he has the sense of music and melodies. Dylan is really one of the solo artists that really marked me like Miles Davis, David Bowie, Lou Reed ... Dylan is a folk artist and for his 2nd album he decided not to be alone with his guitar but to be accompanied by other instruments. This gave "Highway 61 Revisited", an album that exploded the folk and revolutionized Rock. Indeed, since this album, Dylan really has the Rock'n'Roll spirit. This album consists of multiple standart pop music from the 60s. This album is really great, it's really hard not like it.

10/10

Best track: "Like A Rolling Stones"

French comment :
Bob Dylan est, depuis toujours, mon chanteur solo préféré. Ces textes sont d'une beauté inégalable, son style est folk mais l'âme du Rock se dégage de ces chansons. J'adore toutes sa discographie car je suis un vrai fan, mais mon album préféré de lui est sûrement Highway 61 Revisited. Cet album vous fait ressentir un tas de choses, C'est un vrai chef d'oeuvre. 10/10.
Mention spéciale pour le titre Like a Rolling Stone.

My 3rd favorite from Dylan (below Blood on the Tracks and Blonde on Blonde respectively). The production seems dated in comparison to Blonde on Blonde (which still sounds fresh today), but the songs are top notch. Probably the best album ever released up to that point. He was quickly surpassed by the Beatles late 60s output, but he was the king of music here and transformed popular music forever.

Absolutely love the lyrics (and I usually couldn't care less about lyrics), without the harmonica this album would be a 95 from me, but every time the harmonica kicks in the magic dies. Ballad of a thin man is the best track.

From antaiospiano 11/04/2018 23:41
It often gets introduced as “the album that made people take rock ‘n’ roll more seriously and made rock mature”. Let me make this clear: rock ‘n’ roll never needed help from pretentious folkies and rock ‘n’ roll was never meant to be mature.
Having said that, the sound he creates shows he does understand rock ‘n’ roll, and he sounds rather soulful too from time to time. And it clearly had a great deal of positive influence on The Beatles, who - thank god - didn’t necessarily ‘mature’, but started playing with new ‘toys’... and they matured a bit, but not annoyingly like prog rock - yeah I said it. And The Beatles influenced Brian Wilson who then made psychedelic rock, and pretty much put the ‘60s on fire. So yeah, it kinda started the ‘60s.

Dylan uses his new fangled electric guitar and upsets folkies everywhere.
