'Most Of The Time' (1989)
By 1989, Dylan knew he had to start making albums where he actually cared. Taking Bono's advice, he agreed to work with producer Daniel Lanois. They cut Oh Mercy down in New Orleans, in sessions described at great length in Dylan's 2004 memoir Chronicles: Volume One. The result was a huge leap past all his other post-Infidels work, highlighted by the emotionally charged "Most Of The Time." Dylan has been critical of Lanois' heavy-handed production, and he released a stripped-down version of the song on 2008's Tell Tale Signs. Both versions are must-hears.
