This poem - Tunes & Flowers - is very conventional.....it may be technically correct but I didnt find any new ideas at all. And it hardly does justice to what was so unique about Anne Frank...it could be a dedication to any Jewish or Gypsy victim of the holocaust (and that is not to minimize them). ...

Well, those two would be appropriate...one contemplative, the other retrospective.
But on second thoughts, I really don't know....it has occurred to me that my musical tastes swing wildly from time to time.

Well, he clearly said that was the reason he left MB. I don't if he seriously meant it or not.

Lizzytysh....that's good ....'many different verses'. I'm not sure he meant it as limiting perspectives but I firmly interpret it like that. LC is a brilliant and articulate wordsmith, a deep thinker, a fine musician but his perspective (or set of perspectives) is limited just like the rest of us. I...

Well, you'll have to take issue with LC about that quote (and apparently Dylan too). Perhaps most people change in outlook due to experiences but not very much fundamentally at the core. To me that is also an admission of the fact that any one person can only see things from a limited set of perspec...

Linda...this is one of the harder questions I have had to answer...why I like something ?? However, I have attempted to give two partial answers. 1. I actually started listening to his earlier stuff much before his later stuff. And I liked Best of LC, Songs of LC, Songs From a Room and also Songs of...

I'll do it myself.... What I'm getting at is that I absolutely love every one of his albums (including the much maligned DOALM). But I also happen to disagree with SOME of his ideas whether in interviews or in his songs and recently I have also begun to question atleast SOME of his writing style. My...

>>>>>The thing that tends to give me most pleasure in life is being wrong. It just doesn't happen enough, Wow !! I never would have guessed. I actually went back and read some of that thread and I still think TNS is a masterpiece (minus That don't make it junk) as are almost all of LCs albums. He is...

Partisan....I prefer to engage rather than indulge in sarcasm and mindless criticism as well as passing judgment on other people.
And I really do love TNS.

Thanks Chuckles. And talking of criticism...Is criticism of LC allowed on this board or is that not appreciated ?? The picture I get of LC on this site seems to be very one-dimensional (guru, saint etc etc) ...that causes me to lose respect for him or atleast lose interest in the person. Is he reall...

I give up....lost cause !!
Hear LCs first three albums...if the dull monotone is not depressing music then what is (compared to say Beatles records of that era) ?? And this not meant as a criticism...they are my favorites. Just putting things in perspective, atleast for myself.
