    Well, I know it's not the cool album to like, but it's in my top 3 Dylan albums. The album is a stunner, from top to bottom. Except I've never much cared for "Meet Me in the Morning". It just seems like a filler song, to break things up, musically. A lot of the songs on BotT sound similar, so that would make sense. Song similarity is also likely the reason that he left the amazing "Up to Me" off the album (seriously, check that song out if you haven't heard it already).

    I generally prefer his best acoustic stuff to his best electric stuff, and this is definitely among his best acoustic work. Historically, this album wasn't groundbreaking or as dazzling as Highway 61 Revisited or Blonde on Blonde. Make no mistake though, it's as rich an album as he ever made. In the mid-60's Bob was like an extraterrestrial rock poet, it just didn't seem humanly possible to do what he was doing. By 1975, he's just a different guy. Blood on the Tracks is more straightforward, mature, and human. He found a much more direct way to articulate emotional nuance. The singing on the album is amazing, not just the vocal quality, but his phrasing is impeccable. The line "Like a corkscrew to my heart" towards the end of "You're A Big Girl Now" hit ME like a corkscrew in my heart. Or when he leans into these words in Idiot Wind:

    The priest wore black on the seventh day and sat stone-faced while the building burned/I waited for you on the running boards, near the cypress trees, while the springtime turned/ Slooooooooooooowly into Autumn

    The venom in his delivery knocks me right on my ass. The whole song is filled with great lines like that. I listen to Idiot Wind a lot when I'm feeling bitter and heartbroken. I think he ends it on the appropriate note with Buckets of Rain. It's a good song on its own, but it is especially poignant in the context of the whole album. It's playful and wistful at the same time, hopeful yet resigned.

    What do YOU think Night?

    Hah, It's definitely up there for me as well.

    Up to Me.. Yeah. Bob had some really good songs which he never included on albums. Like "Positively 4th Street" which he kept off Highway 61. It's probably my favorite Dylan song.

    Meet me in the Morning is alright. It's presence on the album doesn't bother me. Out of place, maybe a little.

    Idiot Wind might be the most vindictive song ever written. Love it lol.

    I always thought it was criminally underappreciated in his volume of work. It wouldn't crack my top 3, personally. My three favorites are "Another Side of Bob Dylan", and the two which followed that one.

    My favorite song on the album is "Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts".

    Thanks for sharing.
