10 releases since "Tempest." That probably will be his last album of new songs.

Why did the Self-Portrait 2lp got voted by poll for Dylan`s worst album at that time when it was the best impression on him? I guess they pulled it to pieces for it`s conceptional work - not being a "Hit Album" and the featured country musicians which were outdated in 1970. Just another example how hard critics can fail.

I don't see the 1962 self titled debut studio album. Seems odd. I was actually looking to buy one because I no longer have it.

Yes, of course, DYLAN can't sing. And Einstein couldn't think and Shakespeare couldn't
speak English and The Simpsons aren't funny.

A lot of listeners never liked Dylan's voice, I guess because it was so different from anything else they were used to hearing from someone capable of such songwriting brilliance, and popularity, and influence? It was polarizing as I remember, but it's worth noting how annoyed Donovan Leitch has been over the years for being accused for imitating Dylan's sound as early as "Catch the Wind" (1965) though he claimed that he didn't hear Dylan at all until after he'd recorded his first handful of tracks for Pye (believe it or not). But...does anyone remember or has ever read how a (admittedly great) Donovan recording as "Season of the Witch" (IMO probably his finest single achievement) has Dylan's singing style of the time (stretching words and syllables, and singing loudly and archly to make sure the message sank in) all over it, it's so obvious? I think what Dylan did was be his own man (while borrowing as needed) and with support from Columbia records, his manager, and others, found his way to greatness. Yet if his voice sucked so much, why did "Lay Lady Lay" or "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" become hits beyond the fine songwriting and arrangements? Well...maybe that voice was 'just right' and perfect after all? He used his limitations to his advantage as necessary, almost innately, and his remarkable songwriting abilities forced listeners to accept him as he was. There has always been a greatness in that, too.

I'm not going to get into how important Dylan is... or what a fantastic songwriter he is, or how utterly musically brilliant he is...what's the point? But I do have to admit, my biggest pet peeve when it comes to popular music (and it's one of the most oft repeated comments/ popular opinions) is to say that "Bob Dylan can not sing!" My response to this is, "WHAT? Seriously? Don't even go any further. I dont want to hear it. Why, you ask? Because you aren't LISTENING!" Dylan has one of the most emotionally expressive voices in history...period. Why does a voice have to sound sweet? or smooth? No thank you! Beauty is in the eye of the beholder...this works the same way with the ear. I am not so foolish as to insist that everyone must share my opinion. The truth is I dont really care what you think of Dylan's voice, and you can like what you like, but to write him off cause, why? He doesnt sing like Adam Lambert? Mariah Carey? Or Lady Gaga? Or every singer on American Idol? Really? Does the world really need another singer who sounds exactly....like....that? Please people, reevaluate your idea of beauty. Open your ears. Beauty is not what you were told it should be by the mass-media. You know Beauty by the way it makes YOU feel. Not by what you think you are supposed to feel, or supposed to like and dislike. I am not trying to say I am different than you (please...I was subjected to the same conditioning you were since birth... and yes I think Scarlett Johansson is gorgeous) but realize that sometimes the most beautiful things... the most aesthetically pleasing things can be what others will have you believe are down-right ugly or dark. Yes, it's all a matter of taste, opinion, etc. etc. But sometimes I think it has more to do with exposure, and how in-depth you can look at something, or listen to something. Back to Dylan... just for a couple examples. Listen to the live version of Fourth Time Around from the "Royal Albert Hall" and tell me his voice is ugly (no, dont really tell me, cause I dont really care) or listen to Shelter From the Storm or Sarah and tell me that this isn't a man in utter despair over a lost love. Or listen Idiot Wind...without even understanding the words, you know he is just enraged...you know this man just stepped out of divorce court. Or the fear, paranoia and impending doom of All Along the Watchtower or Stuck Inside of Mobile... or the bitter-sweetness of Don't Think Twice, It's All Right, or Visions Of Johanna (his best song ever?), Spanish Boots, I'll Keep it with Mine, I Shall Be Released, Romona, etc. etc. etc. OK I'll stop now, but please, listen to the man before you say he can't sing. I find it funny that you never hear people saying that Muddy Waters, BB King, or all the other great bluesmen can't sing....cause that's how I view Dylan today..like an old Bluesman, an entertainer, and he still putting out utterly brilliant albums (looking forward to the Tempest!!) If anyone CAN SING it's Dylan! (next you'll try and tell me Neil Young can't sing right? Don't worry, I'll Save it).
