5.0 out of 5 stars A Perfect 10: Dylan's heartfelt masterpiece, Dylan's Best, July 3, 2000
This review is from: Blood on the Tracks (Audio CD)
What is Bob Dylan's greatest album? Is it Highway 61 Revisited, an album that revolutionized rock and roll by combining the meaningful lyrics of folk with the rhythm of rock; or is it Blonde on Blonde, another mid sixties classic album with some of Dylan's best lyrics, epic songs, and vivid imagery; or is it Blood on the Tracks, a sweet unambitious album about a man's heart during his crumbling marriage? The answer is Blood on the Tracks, a simple but powerful masterpiece that captures the human emotions of love, anger, sadness, fear, regret, and hope. 'Tracks' doesn't take us into the mind of Bob Dylan, as 'Blonde on Blonde'and 'Highway 61' did, they take us inside Bob Dylan's heart, and inside our own. Dylan writes honest, emotional, beautiful lyrics. The album is the story of a man hanging on to his love, and at the same time letting it go. The album is a snapshot of Dylan's soul. The most beautiful song on the album that stands out is the least assuming. In 'Buckets of Rain,' Dylan's looking out into the rain, and reflects on life and love like no one else has ever done, and finally makes peace with his lonliness and longing for his love, moves on, but will always share a part of his heart for her. I could write for days about this album, but I'm sure you get this picture. Never before have I been moved by a piece of music like this album has, because we all know what Dylan is writing about is not only what's in his heart, but what's buried inside all of our hearts.

I certainly agree with your review. I have a great love for this album and while I think ranking albums as if they were boxers is silly, I don't see how this is anything but a top ten all time great. Dylan's voice was in fine shape in this period and his band was great. Some of the lyrics and stories are so beautiful--if for instance I'm listening to "Rosemary, Lily..' I always pause and stop whatever I'm doing to hear the line "thinking about her father, who she very rarely saw..."

Yes, of course, this is a great album. But -- what about the remastering? Is anything audible gained with the remastered CD relative to the ones that we all already have (and have had for decades)? Thanks for any insights about the remastered CD version.

All day i've been trying to decide which Dylan cd to buy (maybe a greatest hits or "best of", etc.) but after reading your touching review I knew this was the one I had to have. Thanks so much.
