Bob Dylan – Bringing It All Back Home

“Johnny’s in the basement mixing up the medicine / I’m on the pavement thinking about the government,” Dylan kicks off his fifth release with a rock-up energy and makes a remarkable transition into electric territory in the first half of the album. In the second half, however, he returns to the acoustic for the subliminal “It’s Alright, Ma (I’m Only Bleeding)” and the tearful closing “It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue.”
