Our Review

If Dylan had flirted with rock conceits on the previous Bringing It All Back Home, here he did nothing less than tempestuously ravish them, recasting much of the era in his own willfully sketchy image in the bargain. Highway 61 is electric in every sense of the word, a nervy jangle that spins furiously about the twin axes of a full-fledged rock studio band (anchored by Al Kooper and Michael Bloomfield) and a taunting, spectral Dylan who shed the last vestiges of his folkie past to become one of the 60's most elusive icons. Powered by the reptilian licks of Bloomfield, the title track, "From a Buick 6" and "Tombstone Blues" have more to do with garage-savvy American proto-punk than Help! or Rubber Soul, the Beatles' releases that frame the 61 era. There may be nods to the blues ("It Takes a Lot to Laugh..") and his recent folk past ("Desolation Row"), but the intoxicating language Dylan serves up throughout transcend anything as mundane as mere genre. Poetically opaque, brilliantly snotty, and sometimes damn near inscrutable, it remains as consistently riveting as the day it was released.

Customer Reviews

Five Stars Aren't Enough (5 stars) This is the best rock album ever recorded: the most articulate, most intelligent, most raucous, and most elusive songwriting of the past 50 years. Out of an amalgam of blues, rockabilly, and folk music, together with broad cultural references, modernist poetry, and a surprising sense of humor, Dylan creates one of the defining sounds of contemporary popular music and demonstrates the flexability and intellectual range of the popular song. If bob dylan one of the greats (5 stars) even though i am only 12 i respect bob dylan and his music if u like rap or alterantive this album probably isnt for u, but just sit down and listen to these songs 2-5times in a row and u will understand as i do the importance and greatness of bob dylan.I highly reccomend this album. Bob Dylan (5 stars) He's not a singer. He's Bob Dylan. One of the best Albums i've ever listened to in my short 14 years on earth.

Biography

Born: May 24, 1941 in Duluth, MN Genre: Rock Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s Bob Dylan's influence on popular music is incalculable. As a songwriter, he pioneered several different schools of pop songwriting, from confessional singer/songwriter to winding, hallucinatory, stream-of-consciousness narratives. As a vocalist, he broke down the notion that a singer must have a conventionally good voice in order to perform, thereby redefining the vocalist's role in popular music. As a musician, he sparked several genres of pop music, including electrified folk-rock and country-rock....
