Blonde on Blonde? Do you mean Blood On The Tracks? Because that's the commonly-known Dylan breakup album.

The only way to fix that is to drag a razor blade between those two lines.

Blonde on Blonde was the album I left off of my favorite Double Album's list.

It's not that I haven't heard either album, I just am NOT familiar with them at all. I should rectify that, I just never remember to do so when I'm trying to think of albums to listen to.

My two favorite Dylan albums, no question.

Also two of the most critically acclaimed albums ever, as I'm sure you're aware.

Highway 61 and Freewheelin' are my top 2.

Blonde on Blonde is awesome, I just never feel like listening to the entire thing as often as maybe a half dozen of his records. I play certain songs from it all the time.

I like Cover Me, dammit.

I also like Gypsy Biker. And no, not for the seemingly obvious reason.

I'm not a fan of any of the acoustic albums, unless you want to include John Wesley Harding. I don't dislike them, but I never reach for them.

My favorites are Highway 61, Blood on the Tracks, and Oh Mercy, though I usually listen to the latter as a custom playlist with a few tracks he idiotically left off. I guess one could also include Positively 4th Street on the former, which would make a masterpiece even more amazing.

Blonde On Blonde blows me away, but there does seem to be a decent amount of filler on there. Nothing bad per se, but the later tracks don't stand out as much as the first half (Sad Eyed Lady notwithstanding).

Freewheelin' is the most charming, lovable album I've ever heard. And it's Bob fucking Dylan we're talking about here, who seldom falls into either category.

Charm can be deceiving; its dragged Greetings From Asbury Park, NJ near the top of my Bruce list. But I just don't care, I feel so happy when that album is playing.

Oh, geez, looking at the tracklisting of Blood on the Tracks, I know like every song on this. I have no idea why I feel like I don't know it. Listening now.

In retrospect, I'm not so sure I ever have heard Blonde on Blonde.

Even Lily, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts? Dylan's worst lengthy song by far. I guess the story is cool but there's no tune, totally forgettable.

Rectify, STAT.

i think "my lucky day" is the only song off WOAD i'd keep. but that's only because it vaguely reminds me of the outlets' "knock me down again".

I'm sorry, we're talking about BOB DYLAN here.

Perhaps you'd have better luck in the Bruce Spri--


Oh.
