This albums is among one of the most inspiring ever recorded to say the least. This is where freewheelin got Dylan. This is where the compelling lyrics that gave him the reputation of a protest singer up to this point had gotten him. With this album, Dylan was entering the legend: it was the year 1965. Dylan recorded one of the richest albums ever in any possible aspect. He's got both the music and the words. A song like Like a Rolling Stone is very close to being absolutely perfect, and its imperfections at around the fourth minute actually make it work all the better. Although this album was more expensive to make than the frewheelin Bob Dylan would have cost him, where Bob was there alone with a guitar and harmonica and his voice that were enough to make it sound as majestic as the London Symphony Orchestra, here he makes use, and good use at that, of organs, flutes, other guitar and whatever he can get his hands on to make the song sound excellent, and each and every one of the songs on this album actually does. Believe the hype, this is songwriting perfection.
