Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album is rated in the top 5% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.0/100, a mean average of 76.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.5.

Pretty rockin' for a 70-year-old poet. Good songs, some great, but the band really carries the day.

Very nice album. Bob's voice is a bit ragged, but it suits the music just fine. The backing band is excellent, they shine on every track. The slide guitar on "Honest With Me" is VERY nice! If you're a fan of Mr. Dylan's music, definitely pick this one up.

An album which gets better with each listen. Mississippi is one of my fav. Bob tracked ever. Outstanding.

Ad oggi "Love and theft" è l'ultimo disco di Bob Dylan ad essermi piaciuto davvero per intero, molto più del precedente ed acclamato "Time out of mind". Rock'n'roll, blues, ballate, qualche brano in quell'old style che diverrà la regola nei dischi successivi. Almeno la metà dei pezzi è memorabile ed almeno due sono capolavori: "Mississippi" e la conclusiva "Sugar baby", degna di ogni antologia dylaniana il che vuol dire tutto…

A great follow up to time out of mind. It's almost the complete opposite to the darkness of the previous album, in which it seems like Dylan's having a great time. Mississippi is one of Bob's great recent songs. Floater, po' boy and high water also stand out. The only disappointment is the dreary and overlong twelve bar lonesome day blues, but the rest is great.

Outside of blood on tracks and the mid sixties trilogy his most brilliant concoction. The cherry on the top by an artist with the ability to evolve and regenerate thsat has never been seen before and most likely we'll never see again.

Bob's voice is a bit more than an acquired taste on this album, but of course the passion in his voice is still there. Never before has Bob been aided by backing studio musicians (sans The Band) more than on this album either. They provide his incredible songs with a lot of life and color.

A latter day masterpiece from the "Picasso of song". A trip through Americana. Mississippi is the gem here. His delivery is the key. Po' Boy is fantastic as is Sugar Baby. Some great blues. Lonesome Day Blues is badass & Cry A While too (What an odd meter / time signature on this track). I love the crooner tunes too "Moonlight" & "Bye & Bye". Floater is so unique with some great lines! High Water is the other classic but I prefer this one live with a different arrangement. Only track that I don't love is "Summer Days". It's one of the more popular tracks & I usually love ole 50's retro style tunes but it's just alright to me. I love the rough jagged voice throughout much of the album. "Honest With Me" very catchy & fast gets you movin' Great album! MEZ
