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.
Blood on the Tracks (1974)
This, surprisingly, is perhaps my most favorite dylan album. I love his 60's records, and no one will contest their unparalleled influence and sophistication. Still, I give this album highest marks for both its masterful lyricism and its unmatched musicality. For the pure emotion, the consistency of the songs, and its beauty, buy this album. I may just be a sucker for music written in response to tragedy, but this is a timeless classic. Five Stars.
Lifes bloody corners
So good I can be blue for a week after listening on a rainy Sunday alone
The Divorce Album
This is one of two great divorce albums, the other being Willie Nelson's Phases and Stages. Although Lily, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts seems a tad out of sync with the other songs, these expressions capture the wide range of emotions and thoughts everyone experiences during a separation. Simple Twist of Fate has absorbing imagery. Idiot Wiind is as angry as one can get while retaining a pensive quality. If You See Her, Say Hello is tender and lovely. This is one album that should be purchased as an album.
