Apparantly people like "Trying To Get To Heaven"

My Playing God piece on Bob Dylan's Time Out Of Mind is up at Stylus; I'd like to note here as well as there that after a dozen listens I can't remember what the song everybody wants me to include sounds like. And after perusing the lyrics, it doesn't exactly fit with the feel of what I was trying to retain.

Kudos, Ian: you trimmed the album to a managable length.

Thanks! How do you feel about the omission of "Trying To Get To Heaven", though?

Read the Stylus staff page. Shame.

I don't understand. There's nothing on your staff page.

I get how it doesn't fit your vision, but it strikes me as one of the album's most memorable tracks.

Consider yourself unique, I guess. :)

I'm confused about the staff page thing, too.

Ah, he means the staff message board. I see now.
