ALBUM – The Times They Are A-Changin’

ARTIST – Bob Dylan

YEAR – 1964

I think it’s one of his best – not that anything he touches is not gold.  Still, I really enjoy this album.  It’s got one of my favourite Dylan tracks ever.  You probably guessed it already, right?  Yeah, it’s the title track “The Times They Are A-Changin‘”.  Isn’t it the coolest song ever, though?

I had previously posted something about a movie made about him; actually, a film that tried to interpret his many “variations” of character.  Pretty cool movie, pretty awesome soundtrack.  But not to get lost with random thoughts, the reason I mention it is that I recalled the way his writing makes me feel.  It’s sort of like what is presented in the movie.  Genius, brilliant, creative, ambiguous, fun, sad, strong, critic, and it goes on.  Well, his lyrics – poetry, rather – are beyond words, no pun intended.

His music, also.  How long his career has been and how much material he has been able to produce is spectacular.  It will get you thinking, this guy really likes what he does, and he’s fucking good at it, too.  Seriously, this guy is incredible.  Hands down one of the most – if not THE most – influential musicians of our time.  So, let us praise him and his work, please.  This album is a true gem, a must have, a must listen to.

My favourite track, as I mentioned before, stands.  Another one I’m particularly fond of is “The Lonesome Death Of Hattie Carroll“.  Magical, beautiful.  The lyrics relate to a true story.  Check it out.  Cheers…
