Check out the Rock Genre New Releases here

BOB DYLAN...The Times They Are A-Changin'  (1964)
"The Times They Are A-Changin'" was released 50 years ago today in 1964.  It reached number 20 on the U.S. Billboard album charts.  It would be best to check out the Allmusic review rather than read mine.  They like the album.  Me...not so much.  First, I'm just not a fan of the folk-rock scene.  It's not horrible by any means, some of it is good.  But what gets me with Dylan is that he cannot sing, it's so irritating.  Most people either love him or hate him.  I am in neither category as he has put out some terrific material but it's usually a track here and a track there.  There is only one Dylan album that I liked every track ("Infidels").  For this album the terrific track was 'The Ballad Of Hollis Brown'.  The rest, not so much.  Just because I wasn't all that keen on the record doesn't mean you won't be.  I definitely suggest you give it a try as there are millions of folks out there who do love Dylan's albums.  You might be one, too
