Musicians have always appreciated Dylan for his genius with melodic poetry. But there's another level to his early albums. In this period he was a folk hero who smashed illusions and gave a voice to the voiceless.
A song like Times Are a Changin' resonates today with increased force. The dark satire of Highway 61 Revisited seems to have been written more for this era than the 60s.
The bitterness in A Murder Most Foul showed us that his heart is still broken by the evil of this world. He's no narcissist.
There's an interview where he says that this world is just transitional. Something you need to move on from, like a test.
If you've never really sat down and listened to him, you need to, today.
