Blonde on Blonde

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
If Highway 61 Revisited played as a garage rock record, the double album Blonde on Blonde inverted that sound, blending blues, country, rock, and folk into a wild, careening, and dense sound. Replacing the fiery Michael Bloomfield with the intense, weaving guitar of Robbie Robertson, Bob Dylan led a group comprised of his touring band the Hawks and session musicians through his richest set of songs. Blonde on Blonde is an album of enormous depth, providing endless lyrical and musical revelations on each play. Leavening the edginess of Highway 61 with a sense of the absurd, Blonde on Blonde is comprised entirely of songs driven by inventive, surreal, and witty ...

Replacing the fiery Michael Bloomfield with the intense, weaving guitar of Robbie Robertson, Bob Dylan led a group comprised of his touring band the Hawks and session musicians through his richest set of songs. Blonde on Blonde is an album of enormous depth, providing endless lyrical and musical revelations on each play. Leavening the edginess of Highway 61 with a sense of the absurd, Blonde on Blonde is comprised entirely of songs driven by inventive, surreal, and witty wordplay, not only on the rockers but also on winding, moving ballads like "Visions of Johanna," "Just Like a Woman," and "Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands." Throughout the record, the music matches the inventiveness of the songs, filled with cutting guitar riffs, liquid organ riffs, crisp pianos, and even woozy brass bands "Rainy Day Women #12 & 35". It's the culmination of Dylan's electric rock & roll period -- he would never release a studio record that rocked this hard, or had such bizarre imagery, ever again.

    The Must have all ya Dylan fans.

    The best albums that I liked and heard, my wish to make a album like this one, or any Bob dylan best albums that the Rolling stone said in the Rolling Stone 500 best albums of all time. My Favorite record that I heard. The songs are like a album that I will dedicade it, but is a secret. A must have all ya Dylan Fans. BUt the best song that I like to sing to a girl "Just like a woman" She dont know who sings but if I make a tape of this one or buy it to her if something comes, now she will say you singing that song on that album that you gave me. This album is okay,the best songs, the best things,(Like the original LP stlye" but the only that I dont like it is the 2 CD's. I think they want more money but it was better for Single CD, but if there did that idea, i think they going to re-do it again, but still is the best album i heard and the songs i liked.
