Much like Neil Young, the creatively restless Bob Dylan has often -- and seemingly willfully -- tried to shake his fans loose from time to time.

Whether he was embracing electric guitars on 1965's 'Bringing it All Back Home,' country and Americana on 1967's 'John Wesley Harding,' or Christianity on 1979's 'Slow Train Coming,' there have been plenty of times where Dylan risked alienating his listeners. But 1990's 'Under the Red Sky,' filled with nursery-rhyme level lyrics and overly slick production, was the point where many wondered if the former visionary had simply lost the trail -- or worse, given up. Luckily, the singer launched another (still going) winning streak with 1997's 'Time Out of Mind.'
