"Slow Train Coming" is a terrific, eloquent bookend to Dylan's underrated 1970 classic "New Morning" and the culmination of his Seventies experiments in songcraft. A lot of listeners consider "Slow Train Coming" as the beginning of Dylan's "bizarre" gospel turn, an unfair assessment given the riches in his songwriting and the superior craftsmanship of his backing band (check out Mark Knopfler's beautiful guitar work on "Precious Angel"). All Dylan was really doing was taking his music higher. This album is the missing link between "Blood on the Tracks" and "Oh Mercy" and worth paying attention.
I would recommend this to a friend
