iTunes Review

Dylan all but invented the concept of the modern singer/songwriter, but few of his early albums offer the genre’s signature intimacy. Blood on the Tracks—his honest and deeply personal eulogy for a failed relationship—changed all that. With a mellow strum of acoustic guitars, the songwriter offers bitterness ("Idiot Wind"), sorrow ("Simple Twist of Fate”) and tenderness ("Shelter from the Storm”). Mostly, though, he shows a deep appreciation for the beauty of what he once had.

For the idiots and their wind: last word Dylan's voice

"Where is there anyone around today who can sing half this well? I wanted to slug someone at a party recently who was repeating the old canard about Dylan being good in spite of his singing. People don't know what singing is. It's delivery. So-and-so may have a pair of vocal cords that should be put under glass and kept in the Smithsonian; what I want to know is, how much do I hear when that voice speaks to me? Is there an audible, complex consciousness present in the enunciation of every noun, verb and pronoun? When there is, it's not because of the words. Any fool can think, and most can write; delivering those thoughts intact to another mind, another consciousness, is the extraordinary talent....Every word on this record is a hundred times bigger because of the awareness and skill with which it is spoken."

--Paul Williams, review of Blood on the Tracks in Soho News, January 30, 1975 (reprinted in A Simple Twist of Fate: Bob Dylan and the Making of Blood on the Tracks by Andy Gill and Kevin Odegard (2005).

Bob Dylan's influence on popular music is incalculable. As a songwriter, he pioneered several different schools of pop songwriting, from confessional singer/songwriter to winding, hallucinatory, stream-of-consciousness narratives. As a vocalist, he broke down the notion that a singer must have a conventionally good voice in order to perform, thereby redefining the vocalist's role in popular music. As a musician, he sparked several genres of pop music, including electrified folk-rock and country-rock....
