The ‘80s: a “lean period” for Dylan albums?

Thanks to Martin Cowan:

“Interesting to see the voting on this period of Dylan's releases.

“Not sure about "lean years" though (if you disregard weaker contractual obligation albums).

Street 78
Slow Train 79
Saved 80
Shot of Love 81
Infidels 83
Empire Burlesque 85
Oh Mercy 89

(all very strong albums, in my opinion), with:

L and T 01
Modern Times 06
Together Through Life 09

“Which is the leaner?”
