517. a hard rain’s a-gonna fall

“It doesn’t look promising on paper. Bryan Ferry (aka Mr. Suave) taking on Bob Dylan’s 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis inspired whole-world’s-gonna-end-tomorrow-so-I-guess-I’ll-just-write-all-my-songs-tonight apocalyptic masterpiece, turning it into a gospel infused dance number with a big arrangement. But it actually works, and damned well. Miracles never cease, I guess. And the rest of the album‘s pretty strong, too. All covers, all at the very least fun.” (Philip Random)

1064. mixed up confusion

“Contrary to popular belief, Bob Dylan went electric as early as 1962 with this honest eruption of confusionism that I didn’t get to hear until the early 90s sometime when I stumbled across a cheap copy of the Biograph box set, back when everyone was dumping all their vinyl, buying CDs. Thank you all for that.” (Philip Random)
