Bob Dylan Quiz answers: 8, 9, 10 and 11

continued from prior post.

8) 8 ) WHICH BOB DYLAN ALBUM WERE THEY TALKING ABOUT?

We needn’t bow our heads in shame because this is the best album of 1975. It would have been the best album of 1967 too. And it’s sure to sound great in 1983.

E) THE BASEMENT TAPES

of course…. I couldn’t resist including this one.
By Robert Christgau, 1975, in The Village Voice

8) 9, 10 and 11) WHICH BOB DYLAN ALBUM WERE THEY TALKING ABOUT?

One well know American critic said the following, in reviews of three different Bob Dylan albums (presented below chronologically):

(i) ”… this is his best album since “Blood on the Tracks.” (B+)

(ii) “…his best album since Blood on the Tracks.” (B+)

(iii) “…Dylan’s best album in 15 years “(A-)

9) SLOW TRAIN COMING, 10) EMPIRE BURLESQUE, and 11) UNDER THE RED SKY

Of course these are all by Robert Christgau as well. A good many of you got these– they are easy to find on the internet (not that I think that is how YOU figured it out).
At one point I thought about trying to find every review that ever said a new Bob Dylan album was his best since Blood On the Tracks. I collected a good bunch. i might print them in one these blog posts eventually.

  1. i j gray

    So according to your answers, in the quiz there was 2 quotes about “Slow Train Coming” and none about “Blood On The Tracks” – is that correct?

  2. Clifford D. Wuertz

    Wow, I got five correct! I actually consider that to be pretty good considering I own a grand total of one Dylan albums (Blood On The Tracks) unless you count the Greatest Hits compilations.
