Bob Dylan – Slow Train Coming
I didn't know whether to choose Another Side of Bob Dylan or Slow Train Coming, the religious one, but I like the religious one because when Bob Dylan does anything he just goes for it, like fuck you, I'm a Jewish kid and I'm going to serve Jesus. He was born again and went for it, which I think is a testament for any artist to go for your gut and be absolutely true to what you believe and the direction you're going regardless of what anyone says or does.

As far as musically maybe Another Side of Bob Dylan would be better just because of 'Ballad In Plain D', but 'When He Returns', whoever's playing the piano -excellent job, and you're really left waiting for the return.
