think bringing it all back home is my favourite of his (for the acoustic side alone) but this sure runs it close

it wouldn't get in my top 5, always found it overly long, inconsistent with a couple of insanely good cuts

dylan's always been good with closers; desolation row, sad-eyed lady, baby blue, buckets of rain, they're all great

nashville is underrated as hell and much better than JWH

consistent songwriting > overly portentous lyrical themes


I don't find anything pretentious about the song writing themes on JWH. And the song writing on Nashville isn't of a consistently high standard unlike on most of the albums that preceded it but it's still great musically with a few really great songs. Definitely prefer JWH due to the superior song writing but Nashville definitely has its charms.

and yeah Blonde on Blonde is really consistent for a double album and probably my second favourite Dylan overall, behind Blood on the Tracks.

I second North and Wack's comments (as you probably would have guessed from my top 5/6).
