It's the culmination of Dylan's electric rock & roll period -- he would never release a studio record that rocked this hard, or had such bizarre imagery, ever again.

Rolling Stone

Blonde on Blonde, released just 15 months after Bringing It All Back Home climaxed the amphetamine rush of Dylan´s mid-´60s glory. Wirede, fried, the ghost of electricity howling in the bones of his face, Dylan was caught in the most intense burst of creativity any rock & roller has ever had.

Oh Bob, sometimes I just can't stand you I really can't. Your early material...just hand the man a notebook, if there's no melody and just the occasional blast of atonal harmonica - throw the man a notebook and tell him to stop playing and start writing poetry.

...then you get an album like this and it all makes sense, the reputation, the masterful song writing - I get it.
