Totally agree mate and you don't have to apologise for what your ears tell you! It's your view (and mine!) and you've given a good reason as to why you don't like it which is absolutely fine. This thread wouldn't exist if we all agreed on everything! What's really interesting is how and why we like different albums. I couldn't listen to this album again, but others love it! And I'll have albums I love that everyone hates, that's music!Is it ok if I sit this one out please? I listened to it once today and I'm not listening to it again thanks. Bad singing is bad singing and no matter how good the songs are, it's still bad singing.
I think the phrase "small doses" was invented for Dylan.
I get he is revered and respected, and song writing wise I'd agree, but there's no excuse for this.
Surrounded by other musicians as he was on the wilburys album, great, his contribution shines through. But left to his own devices, especially on this album in particular, mmm not convinced.
Apologies to the Dylan fans, but there's no denying this vocal performance is quite awful. If there was one or two upbeat tunes I might forgive it a little, but I found myself hankering for a bit of that Cohen album to cheer me up a bit.
I'm struggling, really struggling, to give it 1/10.
I'd rather not vote at all than give it what it's worth, which is fuck all.
I'm sorry, usually I can find something positive but this is just unpleasant (to my ears anyway)
Ok I'll give it 2/10 just as long as I don't have to go through it all again.
Really sorry to the many fans, I don't mean to be disrespectful I really don't, but I have to write what I hear.
I can give most music a good listen, but his voice on this album is diabolical. I gave it a 3, but in truth I could easily have given it 0. It only scored 3 with me because of the songs.
