Bob Dylan: Street-Legal (1978)
I've read that this record has divided critics and fans for years. Perhaps that should be an indication that this is a good record? There are other examples of records that were dismissed by critics upon release but have gone on to attain seminal status. OMD's Dazzle Ships and Lou Reed's Berlin are two examples.
But, while this may be good, it is not a great record. I like it, but there are several better Dylan albums, in my humble opinion. One gets the sense that Dylan really isn't trying very hard, but who am I to say?
I could not find any appropriate clips on Youtube.
