A resposta americana a invasão britânica. Valorização da poesia, não só na melodia.

There's so much more great stuff on hear other than don't think twice and blowin in the wind, I especially love the tracks masters of war and talkin world war three.

The best traditional folk album I listened to, such a powerful attack on the Wars, both exterior, and interior, that where happening in the USA. And to add up with that, some pretty well written love songs, as usual for mister Dylan. A personal favorite of mine is "Girl From The North Country", although I found the Nashville Skyline version better.

Cinque canzoni: sono bastate "Blowing in the wind", "Masters of war"; "A hard rain's a-gonna fall", "Girl from the north country" e "Don't think twice, it's alright" a Bob Dylan per rivoluzionare il mondo della musica e non poco pure il mondo in generale. Le fondamenta della musica della seconda metà del secolo scorso e pure della prima di questo…

Only Dylan's second album and he's already a better songwriter than all these hacks I've been subjecting myself to.

From JulianR
An amazing record, combining the feelings surrounding the Cuban Missile Crisis and the general threat of impending apocalypse with Dylan's unique mix of humor and populist philosophy. This is the album that turned music into a way to communicate ideas, not just generic feelings. The album itself is amazing and heartfelt, though it tapers off a little musically at the end, although the great lyrics continue

This is secretly the record that started the Sixties. Before long the Beatles heard it, and it completely changed their (especially John's) approach to songwriting. This album heralded the departure from the impersonality of Pop. Young Dylan's persona--subjectivity, moral confidence, irony, humor, brilliance--runs so vividly through this collection of songs... Life-changing stuff.

Definitely a bit uneven and inconsistent, but the highs are so mindblowingly high.

The laid the groundwork for folk to come. And did an exceptional job at being an album in itself.

From Lacobra
There's memorable stuff everywhere on this record: it might be in the words, in the singing, in the fragmented melodies that Bob always knew how to write so well, or even in the mood evoqued by the gentle guitar strums that always manage to sound perfectly like the living spirit of the 20th century folk song. This is a fantastic (and important) record that guarantees entertainment for the listener, even in spite of a few minor songs here and there. "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall", one of the greatest pieces of music ever recorded by anyone, is on this one. That might say it all.
