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).

The way Bob Dylan paints pictures with his songs or just holds a mirror to society is sheer craftsmanship. He really makes you a part of his world that is our world. His lovesongs are never cheesy, always compelling and heartfelt: the never-ending longing for that special love and the blues that comes with it.
I think he's still making good music these days. Albums like TIME OUT OF MIND, LOVE AND THEFT, MODERN TIMES and TELL TALE SIGNS (The Bootleg Series Vol.8) are, imo, vintage Bob Dylan modern time classics. Some will beg to differ and that's their right.
When Bob Dylan's songs are played the next century, and believe me they will, them bells will be ringing for sure!

It's typical for people to say that Bob Dylan wasn't much of a singer. While that MAY be true to a certain extent, his talent for emotion fueled lyrics and genious song writing can not be overlooked. I discovered Bob by the track "Boots Of Spanish Leather" alone, and I later searched through his discography and found many amazingly crafted pieces. I can feel his pain, I can somehow relate. It's a shame that music has taken such a drastic turn for the worst. It's artists like Bob Dylan that give me hope for a better future. I whole-heartedly recommend him for fans of folk, and music lovers in general.

Well what can one say about Bob Dylan that already hasn't been said. He is certainly a poet that has created music of an astounding lyrical content, originality and beauty. I have heard criticisms that 'he can't sing' or 'his voice is awful & too croaky'. Yet my answer to that is listen to the man's lyrics and raw beauty. Ok he might not have the most polished voice, but there is plenty of people out there who can sing all the notes but make such utter garbage music. The man has created some of the most poignant, moving and beautiful popular music of the last century that he is required & essential listening. For me Dylan's best period as an artist was when he created Highway 61 Revisited / Blonde On Blonde (my favourite Dylan album) & Blood On The Tracks. He has of course made many great albums but this was his peak in my humble opinion. A true poet & incredible lyricist who happened to make great music as well.
