: No Security or Stripped?
Stripped, hands down, although that is not to say No Security isn't enjoyable. NS SOUNDS better, but the song selection and performances are not as inspired. Stripped has it all (especially when you factor in b-sides)- rarities, never-before-recorded gems, and (here's the clincher) several tracks which surpass the classic original recordings. IMHO, these are "Wild Horses", "Love In Vain", and "Spider and the Fly". Returning Street Fighting Man to its acoustic glory was a brilliant stroke, and covering "Like A Rolling Stone" was a nifty gimmick. By the way, I'm going to see Dylan tonight - if you can't see The Boys, The Man will have to do!
