i was reading old head bobby xtgau at consumer guide, he gave dylans last 2 albums A+. b4 dat he never gave dude more than A minus. idylan also topp pazz and jopp twice recently, i have to salute him. to do ur best work at his age, gotta salute grumps. i havent heard tha albums, can someoe give me the gist of his narrative etc and how does it compare to his oler stuff. i'm a real long distnce fan of dylan, i dont own any of bhis shit but he one of the few 60's gods that live up to the hype in my opinion.

And the Eagles have the #1 record in the country right now. Dylan's last two aren't even in his top five.

All last night you tossed and turned
Your body was hotter than the night Richmond burned
You say you had a bad nightmare about tractor trailers crashing

Name your top 5 then. Because mine has to include Time Out of Mind. Love and Theft is also a monster. Modern Times? Nope on the top 5.

I don't agree with Montana's top 5, but TOOM and L&T do not eclipse anything on his list.

Totally underrated record.

a lot of the time my favourite dylan reccud.

if any one of that top 5 was questionable it'd be nashville skyline for me, a fun reccud but not a great one.

1. highway 61 revisited
2. john wesley harding
3. blonde on blonde
4. bringing it all back home
5. the freewheelin'

6. blood on the tracks
7. love & theft
8. nashville skyline
9. desire
10. the other side of

11. time out of mind
12. modern times
13. new morning
14. slow train coming

is how i'd rank what i've heard. it gets much more complicated with the bootleg stuff & basement tapes

I think they do.

I think Rolling Thunder and MTV unplugged eclipse anything on the list too, if those can count.

Would have been better as an EP.

Yeah. But more of a novelty. It could never stand up to his best work.

By the way, Planet Waves has to be in the top 5, right?

Obviously, I need to get more Dylan eventually. I don't have JWH, Desire, or Nashville Skyline. Even still, Modern Times is a disappointment after TOoM and L&T. In fact, of what I do have of Dylan's, Modern Times is somewhere near the bottom. In no particular order: 1. Highway 61 2. Blood on the Tracks 3. Time Out of Mind 4. Freewheelin 5. Love and Theft 6. Bringing it all Back Home Maybe I'm a plebian, but Blonde on Blonde just doesn't agree with me. Oh Mercy has moments of sheer genius as well (Most of the Time, Ring them Bells).
Khaaaaan!!!!

1. Live 1975 - The Rolling Thunder Revue - Disc 2 2. Live 1975 - The Rolling Thunder Revue - Disc 1 3. Unplugged 4. Time out of Mind 5. Highway 61 Revisited 6. Oh Mercy 7. Love and Theft 8. Blood on the Tracks 9. Planet Waves 10. Nashville Skyline In no particular order. I absolutely love Unplugged. It, as well as Live 1975 are live sonic masterpieces. I put Planet Waves on there, but if it can't be because it's Dylan and the Band, I'd replace it with: Blonde on Blonde.
