During the course of his amazing career Bob Dylan has made more changes of direction and style than any other major artist. None of these changes is more marked than with the creation of Blood On The Tracks. Blood On The Tracks is undoubtedly a product of Bob Dylan's struggle to come to terms with the breakdown of his eight year long marriage. The album is deeply rooted in the dark side of life, and exudes rage, pain, bitterness, sorrow, and, at times, cruelty. Blood On The Tracks is a largely quiet, acoustic-based album, and is the sound of an artist returning to his strengths.
