As with everything else in life, there are two ways to look at it. Why then, upon repeated listenings and much consideration, does the idea seem more bad than good? What is it that finally disappoints about these two fine records? Popular on Rolling Stone. Sometimes late at night after listening to these two LPs, I become bold enough to change that is to was. O 1: I would hope not. I can remember you liking all of those records. O 2: My conclusions would be the same, but GH, Vol.
II would be a better set. Dylan turns out to be a creature Like A Rolling Stone - Bob Dylan - Bob Dylans Greatest Hits contexts after all, and too many of these songs sound weak and out of place in pastures for which they were not designed. John Wesley Harding was another fine transitional LP. New Morning seems to me only a so-so comeback. He seems to have lost his individuality, his ambition. It could well be what Dylan thinks it is, his best album. O 2: Like Bogart in Casablanca, I was misinformed.
O 1: What you hope is immaterial. You seem to insist on playing Hamlet where such high drama is totally uncalled for. II that warrants a think piece, that I felt I was being forced into this. O 2: No. Fortunately or unfortunately, none of us, Dylan included, is that divinely crazy any more: the time is just not right for it. Et cetera. Are you pandering any proof?
O 2: I see a lot of optimism there, but not as much as you do. But none of the songs on it are new ones. All of the emptiness and fussiness is gone, the sharpness is back, and Dylan is singing and playing like music means something to him again. After all, I like Dylan just as much as you do.
Three good songs are three good songs, but I can name for you a half-dozen artists who have done better, more exciting, more ambitious work in the last few years than Dylan has. That Snake Oil - Robby Krieger - Cinematix fair.
