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 has a Bayesian average rating of 72.0/100, a mean average of 71.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 71.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.6.

I am coming to this album late on after knowing Dylan for years - but I haven't been what you would call a folkie. I have opened up to it more in recent years and so delved in here. I think I was right to wait as although I like it - and some cracking tracks like Talkin New York, House of the Rising Sun and Song To Woody - it isn't amongst my favourite Dylan or even that folk albums I have since found

Not Dylan's best album but very interesting of course and some clear signs of what was to come later on in his career

Forte estreia do menino Dylan! Versões poderosas e o começo do letrista que viria a ser!

Tenía más altas expectativas. El album debut de Bob Dylan, lanzado en 1962, en mi opinión tiene temas muy olvidables, además de la baja calidad en la producción de ese tiempo. Hace un par de días escuché The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan por primera vez, siendo ese el segundo album de Bob Dylan que escuché (después de Highway 61 Revisited). Lo amé y decidí escuchar toda su discografía. Siendo este album debut el tercer disco que escucho, puedo decir que de los tres es el que menos he disfrutado, pero si hay algo que me gusta es que, por lo que veo más adelante en su discografía, Bob Dylan mantiene su esencia de escribir letras filosóficas y usa su inseparable armónica. Lamento ser un poco duro con este album, pero, por lo que veo, su discografía solo mejora. Pronto seguiré con el resto de su trabajo.

The start of a legend. Not a favorite album of mine, but it's clear in it's influence and roots. Here, on full display, Dylan is slowing chiseling out what he will become: the voice of a generation.

Song to Woody alone makes this album an all time great. Shows the promise of Dylan's writing for the years to come.

Overall a enjoyable album, with some good tracks like the versions of "House of Rising Sun", "Man of Constant Sorrow" and "See that my grave is kept clean". A traditional folk album that has it's merits even If pullen away from the rest of the legend that is Bob Dylan.

It's a pretty underrated album from him. Not his best but definitely overlooked.
