Overview

Every few years, Bob Dylan returns to form with an album that is widely touted as his best since Blood on the Tracks. Pretty ironic, since this 1975 masterpiece came at just such a moment, when Dylan's career seemed in decline. Only his hardiest fans had been able to stomach 1974's Planet Waves, and the live recording Before the Flood was interesting mostly for its radical reworking of older material. But from the first notes of "Tangled Up in Blue," the opening cut of Blood on the Tracks, Dylan offers pure piercing poetry. Many of the songs are about emotional debris following a crumbled marriage, though Dylan looks at the political landscape in "Idiot Wind" -- gamely criticizing even himself -- and his cinematic, playful tale "Lily, Rosemary, and the Jack of Hearts" deserves to be made into a western. Dylan went on to make Desire, a recording almost as good, before beginning another of his periodic slumps.
