Bob Dylan – Bringing It All Back Home

3 06 2010

Listened: Tuesday June 1

Bob has a crapload of albums starting with B. I hadn’t noticed before.

As I’ve noted before, I love a lot of the Bob songs, but sometimes there are a couple on any given album that I skip because they’re too far down the hole. However, that isn’t the case here; I love Bringing It All Back Home as a whole and I think it’s really cohesive.

There are so many things to see here: the addictive speedhead rapping of Subterranean Homesick Blues and On The Road Again, the beautiful poetry of Love Minus Zero/No Limit, She Belongs to Me,  and Baby Blue, the trippiness of Mr. Tambourine Man, Gates of Eden, and It’s Alright Ma.

I used to think I didn’t like Maggie’s Farm, but upon listening at work, the lyrics really spoke to me. You can be deep in the drudge and feel it when you sing “They sing while you slave and I just get bored, I ain’t gonna work on Maggie’s farm no more…”
