I've been avoiding buying "Street Legal" for years because everything I have ever read about it focuses on its terribly muddy sound. The songs are truly among Dylan's most melodic best and sung with incredible fervor. If you are a Dylan fan you've heard this from countless people: "I'm sure Dylan is a good song writer but he just can't sing!" Ok, we Dylan fans know that's not true but next time it happens just pull out "Street Legal" to prove that he can too sing by anyone's standards. Many of these songs are a tour-de-force of Dylan's absolutely unique and ingenious way of phrasing. He rhymes lines with the middle of some words, cramming the rest of the line into a space only he could find within the beat. The backing on this album is also exceptional. It's a big band with horns and backup singers in the tradition of Joe Cocker tunes like "Feeling Alright." They play with incredible intensity. The lyrics are sometimes bewildering. The songs are seldom linear stories but more like collections of imagery. This works because you always hear something new depending on the mood you're in. There's also a lot of psydo-religious imagery packed in there. I wonder why this isn't considered the first of his "born again" phase after hearing it. It doesn't get preachy, though, more like a level of mysticism, and unfocused at that. 1. Changing of the Guards 2. New Pony 3. No Time to Think 4. Baby Stop Crying 5. Is Your Love in Vain? 6.
