Agreed, agreed, agreed. I can't stop listening to "Lazaretto". It's brilliant. Great recap of this fine album, Leilani!
Sorry for the confusion: what I meant by his "debut" was that this was the first time he'd played the venue since it's dramatic overhaul and revamping. I was aware of both of his previous appearances at the venue but both were before the theater had undergone its awesome facelift.
Epic response, Leilani.
It's a further tribute to the mystique and the aura that surrounds Dylan that his accomplishments as a recording artist are still scrutinized in these types of debates. He and his work have consistently been a source of contention between his believers and his detractors. For this reason, and dozens more, my vote in this poll goes to Bob. No other artist has been able to polarize the opinions and beliefs of music lovers for damn near fifty years now. Oh, and the pile of amazing, ground-breaking, immensely influential albums he's released throughout his reign are pretty good reasons to give him the nod as well.
I'm sorry Lou didn't meet your standards of "singing". I for one have always felt that the most effective and satisfying rock 'n roll had more to do with feeling than technique. And if you honestly think that a child of 13 years has an inkling as to what " New York hipsterism" , as you refer to it, even is, you are more of a cynic than a believer in the enormous power of music.
I've tried this sauce and, I gotta tell ya, IT ROCKS!
Shae: excellent choice...I'm a huge Dylan fan and I love "Planet Waves". Nice to see others who like it too!
