Dylan’s weakest song #6

Thanks to Andrew Kelly:

“I'm surprised nobody has mentioned them as yet, but surely the songs on Slow Train and Saved have to be up there somewhere?

“They are simply a bunch of received ideas. The salient feature of his nibs' work excluding these two albums is originality of thought and expression.

“Whatever his conversion's other effects, it plainly booted his critical faculties into touch.”
