Dylan once described Highway 61 Revisited as being "just too good". I honestly believe that is an understatement. Highway 61 Revisited is easily the my favourite Bob Dylan record, and is one of my top albums of all time.
It is a fine album to show off Dylan's brilliance as a lyricist. His lyrics are manic, absurd and yet, they tell a story that can be interpreted in many different ways, ea... read more

Bob Dylan wrote some of the greatest songs of the sixties. And this was his best album. The songs on this album have reached legendary status. "Like a Rolling Stone" was listed at number one on Rolling Stone‍ '​s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time list. The album itself was number 4 on Rolling Stone‍ '​s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time

Description: Highway 61 Revisited is the sixth studio album by American singer-songwriter Bob Dylan, released on August 30, 1965 by Columbia Records. Having until then recorded mostly acoustic music, Dylan used rock musicians as his backing band on every track of the album, except for the closing track, the 11-minute ballad "Desolation Row". Critics have focused on the innovative way Dylan combined driving, blues-based music with the subtlety of poetry to create songs that captured the political and cultural chaos of contemporary America.

100 Greatest American Albums of All Time (100 music items)

"Bob Dylan invents folk music from the future Dylan didn’t abandon folk music; he just hauled it forward a few centuries. Out went acoustic hymns of protest, in came a whirlwind of images — mad, random, yet cruelly precise. This was big-city stuff, all psychic chaos and information overload. A loud bastard, and a Top 5 hit. Standout tracks: “Like a Rolling Stone,” “Desolation Row”"

"Dylan flips the bird at the naysayers with his first (almost) entirely electric set. It featured the rant “Like a Rolling Stone” and the twisted mythology of the title track, remaining defiantly “plugged” until the acoustic 11-minute closer, “Desolation Row.” Standout track: “Like a Rolling Stone”"
