When I hear the lyric "See the primitive Wallflower freeze" I wonder if Jakob was influenced by it in naming his band.  Maybe I'll have to do the Googling to figure that one out...unless someone else knows....

Out there today is another Ginsberg and Dylan, maybe Jason Isbell and some Black dude I don't listen to at all, but out there somewhere kids listen to music with the intensity of souls unchained by rock critics pronouncements anxiety filled waiting for that moment the past is erased by the promise of technology and start-ups building their world on their terms overturning all that came before that beats them down depressed undignified with hovering death drones watching their every thought and text.

Wow, I'm honestly surprised at the low avg rating of this track. Other than the harmonica, I would have thought this would have an average of at least 7.5. Oh well, I suppose different strokes for different folks.

This is one of my 11s, of which I have 11 (11 happens to be my number) 

When Bob dies, assuming I'm still kicking, his funeral will be the only celebrity funeral I'll want to attend.  Long live BobD, BillG and RebeccaG!

Wow, given the number of ratings, the distribution is all over the map on this one.  Usually, there's a much more bell-shaped curve by 1000+ ratings.  Guess this is a 'love it or hate it' kind of song.

From time to time, I think Bobby does these kinds of songs just to piss people off. To wake them up.

Besides, his photos is pretty cool looking. And he's a Nobel prize winner.

Understandable. No doubt this is one of the more "challenging" (read long) tunes in Bob's canon, especially for the uninitiated.
Still, good to hear once in a while.

A bit on the long side, don't you think?  For those of us who aren't fans of this particular iteration of Dylan,* is there any way we can rig the PSD button to play The Waterboys' "Long Strange Golden Road" in place of this?  It'll save a few dozen mouse clicks.

*Full disclosure: I like his shorter works like "You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome" and "If You See Her" from Blood on the Tracks, but this and the other "Subterranean Homesick Rainy Day Women & the Jack of Hearts Who's Only Bleeding" long form word salads just do not appeal to me.

I dont' know. He's a genius no doubt, did more for contemporary music than 80% of all other musicians combined, will be forever remembered as one of the lighthouses of 20/21st century music and culture in general.

Yet I never got it. I mean "Blowing in the wind" was great with a joint in my hand, thinking how now I got it, really got it... but really there's nothing, no resonance here. Just saying, no judgement. Just wondering how sometimes even great things don't mean much to some and everything to others.

«Inside the museums, Infinity goes up on trial»
When I was a teenager and in my early twenties I always read that as related to ancient art, but...today for the first time I was thinking about contemporary art, and how it won't resist time. Not because of what I might think if it but because of its volatility, even if it lasts in its form for some of it. Infinity is dead, isn't it?

of course you can like or not like anything and not need anyone anywhere, especially here, to give you permission for that. Cheers to ya.

That said, for the haters, with an artist like Dylan, if you're gonna critique like it should matter - you better come proper, and large. And I mean f'n large. Cz for what Dylan brings, In the battle between humanity and rampant corporate influence, those pissy little rants are like treason. And for good reason that's a hangable offense.

Yeah for Bob! 

He really doesn't care what people think about his music.

So for all you who don't like it, it's OK, tune out for a few minutes.

You can probably tune in when Arcade Fire or Smashing Pumpkins or Foo Fighters are playing.

If you are ever lucky enough to catch this one live it is outstanding.

Great song.  Great performer.

Live music is better, bumper stickers should be issued.

Dylan continues to polarize listeners—most either hate him or worship the ground he walks upon.  I must admit that I was well into my 30s before I began to appreciate the depth and sheer volume of his genius.  Now in my 50s I have a newfound appreciation for his longer nostalgic pieces, especially this one.  10.  "Godlike"  Any problems with that?
