I was trying to go through all the songs, but my MP3 isn't charged enough and my CDs are at my house. I would probably agree with you, but maybe the songs would be different. I don't remember LARS being exceptional and I don't remember much about Don't Think Twice. I am going to listen to the WHOLE thing tomorrow, but I guess if I like most of the songs, it is pretty good. I probably wouldn't have given it much of a 2nd or 3rd listen if I Want You and Along The Watchtower hadn't been so good. I wish that MP3 would finish charging!!! Soon, I will have my CDs in hand all the time and I can't wait. I like pretty much all of Blonde on Blonde except for the first song and again, I don't know why; it just never appealed to me. I really like Oh Mercy, but there are a couple of songs I don't care for, but since I love the other ones, it is one of my favorites. I don't know if there is a bad one on BOTT and I really like Desire too, but although I pretty much like the whole CD, I think some of the songs aren't that great when it comes to songwriting, but I like them. However, that's just a few of the songs and I wouldn't pick them out as great songs, but I do like them. Time Out of Mind - very mixed on that one, but I like it more and more. I didn't think it was a great album the first time I heard it though. I do like Modern Times a lot, but I think TTL is pretty much boring and maybe I need to listen to that again; I just can't get past Jolene and My Wife's Hometown!!! Maybe I don't like the wife reference!!! I do find that with say "Self Portrait", you appreciate the albums more, the more you listen to them. Sometimes, I play Oh Mercy for days on end and then it will be BOTT. Probably Blonde on Blonde and BOTT are the most perfect albums for me, but I like Budokan because there are so many good songs and I Want You. I need the vinyl badly!!!
Love, Joanna XOXO P.S. It took me many years to appreciate Boots of Spanish Leather and then I heard TATE do it and I thought it might be the most beautiful song ever written. I still have to get through 2 more CDs on Chimes of Freedom. I do like it; some songs are exceptional like that TATE one and some are okay. Really though, it's worth the money. I liked the "I'm Not There" soundtrack, but my favorite song is Bob singing that. It's worth buying the whole CD just to hear that! Now, Budokan, I just like, don't know why, but I do and I know that there has never been a better version of I Want You. If so, please send me it. I do love that song!!
