A great album, to be sure - one of my favorite early Dylan albums. But as a surround title? It's just him and a guitar. The "stereo" mix is barely in stereo as it is (in fact, I think it might be mono - haven't listened with headphones in awhile). Why they bothered to do this one in "surround" is beyond me, especially when there were so many later albums that would have greatly benefitted from it that weren't done. Gave it a six.

You said it. Of all the Dylan's redone in surround, this one has the least impact (as in, pretty much, none). Meanwhile, Highway 61 Revisited , Desire and Planet Waves - - among others - - were released as stereo-only. Oh well... This is indeed a great album, just not a very good multi-channel one.

A '5,' but only because, as noted, as a surround title this doesn't have a load of things going on. BUT....it is unique in multichannel annals, if only because the original album was a 'might as well be mono' mix on the stereo edition, and the fact that there's real separation here is a boon for stereo collectors, if not a big deal for multichannel fanatics like us. For that reason alone it was a worthwhile release.

So what exactly is in the rear channels... just ambience? I haven't opened mine yet. I may just keep it sealed and pick up the new MFSL SACD, but that one is definitely just stereo.
