The War On Drugs album is just absolutely stunning.

Picked it up about six weeks ago and probably listened to it 50 times.

It's an album that must be listened to from beginning to end with no skips.

I had never heard of them before, wish I would have paid more attention to James's post and picked it up earlier.

I've been revisiting many of Bob Dylan's Bootleg Series albums. I'm always amazed at the high quality of Dylan's output that went unreleased for so long. My favorites are Vol. 4: The Royal Albert Hall Concert (such a fantastic live album, not only in the performance but also the great sound), Vol. 7: No Direction Home (if you love his mid-sixties period and you like alternate takes, this is a must-have), Vol. 8: Tell Tale Signs (astonishingly good late period Dylan, featuring some mind-blowingly good stuff). The man's choices of what to put on and what to leave off his albums are as enigmatic as he himself is! The collection of "hits" called simply Dylan also has some great exclusive tracks: "Things have changed" is found here, and is one of his best songs, I think; great late-period Dylan. Also there's a truly great live performance of "Can't Wait". It seems Dylan is so prolific, one has to scour even greatest hits collections for terrific exclusive tracks.

After getting turned on to The War on Drugs, I am now immersing myself into Kurt Vile. Wakin On a Pretty Daze is his latest and my first. Color me impressed. Great album start to finish. Highly recommended.

Working my way back through his catalog. Next up is Smoke Ring for My Halo.

Some days, Tell Tale Signs is his best stuff ever for me. Red River Shore - top ten all time Dylan tracks

People on here would probably like the album 'Goon' by Tobias Jesso Jr

Like 74/75 John and Paul, basically
