Easily Dylan's best acoustic album. Some complain about the dark & serious tone, but for me that is exactly what makes me love this album. Dylan is no comedian; he can't sing rowdy drinking songs full of delight, the fast songs on the other early albums sound awfully awkward to me. What he can do wonderfully however is sing dark folk songs about death, misery & injustice. See "North Country Blues", it's truly chilling. He can also write anthems - the title track, "With God On Our Side", "Only a Pawn in Their Game" are inspiring and still strike a nerve fourty years later. He sings with amazing dedication, straight from the heart. I appreciate the stream-of-consciousness rambles of his '65 & '66 too of course, but he never sounded this honest after '64. -Anonymous online review

Produced by Tom Wilson, it is the singer-songwriter's first collection to feature only original compositions. The album consists mostly of stark, sparsely-arranged story songs concerning issues such as racism, poverty, and social change. The title track is one of Dylan's most famous; many felt that it captured the spirit of social and political upheaval that characterized the 1960s. Some critics and fans were not quite as taken with the album as a whole, relative to his previous work, for its lack of humor or musical diversity. Still, The Times They Are a-Changin' entered the United States chart at twenty, eventually going gold, and belatedly reaching four in the United Kingdom in 1965.
