Check out the Top !0 Rock Genre Albums For This Week

BOB DYLAN...The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan  (1963)
The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan was released 50 years ago in 1963 and reached number 22 on the U.S. Billboard album charts.  Critics and fans alike just love this album, some even saying it's the greatest album ever recorded.  Folks, that is hogwash!  I just don't see the huge appeal of Dylan, especially before he brought in an electric guitar into his sound.  He cannot sing whatsoever and I could not wait for the record to get over.  Just not my cup of tea and I'll give it 1 out of 5 stars.  Not recommended
