Snowed in by a combination of the Beast From The East and Storm Emma. Wow, more time to play some I've not heard for ages!

Here we go again.

Desire is leagues above the other two.

There's method in my madness. I envisage a knock out competition where the winners of each poll goes into another round (the quarter finals?), then on to the semis and then the grand final. A bit like a Bod Dylan World Cup?

Oh Mercy for sure! Desire is wildly overrated.

No it isn't. By whom? You are underrating it. 8)

Desire. Oh Mercy is very close, though.

An absolute scandal that I was the first to vote for Nashville Skyline.

Shame on you all.

Yea I don't see it's overrated. It has a character, feel and sound unlike ANY
other album and Dylan NEVER sounded better, before or since. I feel Desire
is with BOOT the zenith of Bob as a singer. Raw, real, energetic but never
without nuance.
Generally I think Desire is rated as A- Dylan which is just about right. Maybe
a song or two of folly & filler in there, but otherwise fresh & phenomenal.
And Bob did bohemian gypsy way before Kevin Rowland ever tuned his guitar.

Wow, I thik this has to be the closet poll yet. If Desire does win then Oh Mercy might still make it to the next round as one of the best placed second teams. All to pay for. I wish it would stop snowing or someone else would compile the next poll!

Ah, the inevitability of idiocy can be so reassuring.
