Bob Dylan's third album The Times They Are a Changin', released in 1964, might not have been such a landmark as The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, but it still was a very strong album. This album was political and social statement like no other. Most of the songs on his protest album are about very dark subjects, such as murders, racism, war, and hardship. As the album released two months after president John F Kennedy's assassination, the powerful title track became an anthem for the generation. The lyrics are absolutely brilliant and Dylan's singing, and playing is simple, but powerful.
