Blonde on Blonde [Remastered 1-CD] ()


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 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. [In 2004, Columbia/Legacy reissued the two-CD remastered Blonde on Blonde as a single disc.] ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi Hide synopsis

Don't tell anyone you don't own Blonde on Blonde!!

by KareninsSmile on May 1, 2009

One of my favorite albums. Bluesy, folky, rocky and eclectic, all rolled into one. I'm not even going to try to write with depth or elloquence about this album, because, basically, everyone should own it and know how brilliant it is! The lyrics are brilliant in every song, one of the few albums I own where I don't skip any of the tracks. Leopard-skin Pillbox Hat is a classic, One of Us Must know is brilliant, Visions of Johanna is beautiful, 4th Time Around is bizarre, every song is a classic actually. If you don't own it, don't ever admit it to anyone...and buy it!
