    I have a lot of respect for him and know he inspired/was admired by a lot of my favourites, and he's clearly one of the all time great writers.

    But for whatever reason I've just never got fully into his music like I have others and not a huge lover of his voice.

    That probably sounds more negative than I intended. It may well be that his time will come with me, but for now I just listen to a handful of his songs from time to time. He's probably the solo equivalent to the Beatles for me (who I have never been a lover of given their popularity, but enjoy a few songs on the occasion).

    Bob could be considered an acquired taste but once you know what he is about and what he represents you could spend a lifetime intrigued by what he does.

    It's fair to say that he's not got the best voice but he's produced some brilliant stuff.

    As an aside, I have colleagues who organised one of the biggest festivals in France and Dylan is apparently by far the biggest tosspot they've had to deal with (and there's been a few).

    If you hear Dylan as a black blues vocalist his voice might be easier to appreciate, his phrasing is second to none, regards the second point we can all be tosspots depends on the circumstances.

    I know enough about his music and what he represents (I reckon) hence my appreciation and respect for his work and the influence he’s had on musicians that I do love. Just not a total lover of his music yet.. again a bit like the Beatles.

    I like listening to his Billy the Kid soundtrack stuff more than anything else of his really!

    The beatles...ridiculous. George Harrison alone was better than 95% of artists and he was 5% of the beatles

    It’s not ridiculous at all.. I’m not a lover of the Beatles. I just think they’re alright. 😁

    They’re not even remotely close to being a patch on the stones.

    I’d say your Harrison claim is ridiculous.. were there 20 members of the Beatles 🤔

    5% roughly of the output, although it was mostly exceptional. Beatles had a broad range from blues to psychedelic to early punk like helter-skelter. Just phenomenal, everything is subjective but it's like saying Messi is ****

    Definitely an album artist. A good portion of his best work you won’t find on any greatest hits compilation.
