When I first got into Bob Dylan several years ago, the first album I bought was Highway 61 Revisited. After picking my jaw up off of the floor, I started reading more about Dylan and kept hearing about this "electric trilogy", so I went and bought "bringing It All Back Home". Again, a home run masterpiece of a record.
So then I read where people kept saying "Oh man, you haven't heard nothin' yet! Go get Blonde on Blonde! It's the best." So I got it and... it was underwhelming. It was long, bloated and very self-indulgent, which is the exact opposite of the other two parts of the "trilogy.
I simply cannot understand the extreme adoration that this album gets on the intenet and in the press. Now don't get me wrong, there is a pretty good album in there if you cut off about 4 or 5 tracks, but as it is, the album is a jumbled mess.
