Triplicate's been out for a few days now, what's the consensus for the best disc? I think Devil Dolls is probably the one I've gone back to the most.

It's a bit like asking what my favourite form of self-inflicted torture is.

Isn't it my turn to make Dylan listen to me sing these crappy old songs?

Fair's fair, after all.

Did you pay extra to have Dylan & co. strap you to a chair and force you to listen to the music? I must have missed the "Make Me Listen" package. All I saw was "if you want it, buy it... if you don't, skip it."

Bummer, I would have ponied up.

I don't think any of them is way above the other two, but I give the slight edge to 'Til The Sun Goes Down. It has my favorite song on the album "September" and slightly less filler than the other two.

I've just been listening to the first disc; don't want to move on till I've absorbed it. (And I love it!)

It's so hard to choose! At first I was with disc 1 all the way, but the other two keep getting better!

I think that's the best way, treat it as three albums rather than one long one.

Disc one is my favourite so far. I haven't stayed awake late enough to appreciate disc three. It's a moonlight disc.

Hard to choose . . . I'm leaning towards the weary gravity of the first act compared with the playful second act . . . third and final act hasn't really hit me yet at all, it just seems to glide by unnoticed

One things for sure — all three are growing on me with every listen

Each disc is very very evenly matched, so I still haven't decided. At the moment, I am leaning towards disc 1 as it feels like it has the most emotional punch.

Disc 2 contains the one track that jars a little for me--"Flaw in my Flue."

At first listen it was Devil dolls, as it sounded more funny, but after a few listens, I think 'Til the Sun goes down is the best globally.

All five of the standards discs are excellent. I slightly favor the most recent three but it's very close. It took me days to get to COMIN' HOME LATE just because I was enjoying 'TILL THE SUN GOES DOWN and DEVIL DOLLS so much, and I just didn't want to get to the end.
Dylan's voice is superb throughout. He hits all (or nearly all) of the notes. The people who aren't impressed are the same sort of people (not the same people, just the same sort of people) who couldn't stand Dylan's voice singing his own songs because the were used to Peter Paul and Mary. I have seen the same thing in the past when Dylan (a much younger Dylan) sings something like "Yesterday." A lot of very negative reactions follow. Even those people who don't like the standards come to them with a preconceived notion of what sort of voice is "supposed" to sing them. They can't get that sweet tone out of their head.

Nonsense. The reason me and Triplicate don't get on is simply that it sounds like a Spice-jacked street drinker has stumbled into a recording studio and hijacked a session then slapped some heavy metal artwork on the results and released three f**king disks if the stuff.

I wish I could convince myself it's a fantastic Dadaist stunt, like those iron gates and his paintings.

I like the arrangements and this project in general, but there's a high-pitched feedback whistle behind "When the World Was Young" (at least on Tidal) that isn't present on other 'Sampler' tracks. Do you guys hear it? Maybe I'm crazy.

Yeah, it's the equipment picking up interference. Various hums, clicks, buzzes etc make an appearance on all of the last three albums.

Engineer Al Schmitt makes great sounding recordings but (perhaps not coincidentally) he's also very old school, using mostly analog tube equipment which is known for being a bit erratic.

It also doesn't help that Bob is singing through a very sensitive condenser mic that picks up and amplifies any unintended noise in the studio.

Still finding it pretty much equibalanced. Maybe moving slightly from disc one to two.

Some achingly beautiful lyrics that Dylan has brought to the surface, at least for me.

I still think it is pretty even, but disc one is particularly beautiful and touching. So I'll stick with that.

"Happy birthday Mr D."

Thanx.
