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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 86.2/100, a mean average of 84.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 86.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.4.

This is a huge turning point in the history of music and not only is it incredibly influential it is also full of some of the greatest songs of Bob Dylan's career. Mr. Tambourine Man, Subterranean Homesick Blues, Maggie's Farm and the two closing tracks are the example of this outstanding quality. His writing is phenomenal as always making it a joy to explore his lyrics deeper and understand what he was trying to say. Dylan's harmonica and guitar work is brilliant on here as well with it sounding so personal and like he has completely mastered his instruments. There is also quite a bit more depth added to the music on here compared to his previous releases with a few more additional musicians backing him up and this only strengthens his sound making this an easier record to revisit. Overall, this is a hugely influential album that is one of the most important in Dylan's career and it also has so much musical quality on here as well.
With "Bringing it All Back Home" from 1965 Bob Dylan changed limits for when music should be called pop, folk, beat or blues. After releasing four excellent acoustic albums filled with clever original songs, Dylan here took the step into electric music, by allowing one side of the album to be accompanied by electric guitars, bass and drums.
Five of these songs were basically 12 bar blues with raw unpolished electric accompaniment. Among these "Subterranean Homesick Blues" and "Maggie's Farm" have become classics of the period, while "She Belongs to Me" and "Love Minus Zero / No Limit" are two of the most beautiful love songs Dylan has ever released. Both are available in numerous cover versions - Rick Nelson has for example brilliantly interpreted both songs.
On side two of the original album, Dylan is back in his usual music approach with his acoustic guitar, harmonica and his own characteristic vocals. Lyrically, however, Dylan has moved himself, towards the more surreal and refined. Also here we have some of his greatest classics like "Mr. Tambourine Man" and "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue" two songs which The Byrds superbly chose to interpret.
In short, this is an album that set new standards for modern music and an album all music lovers deserve to hear.
It has Mr. Tamborine man. That alone makes it a good album for me. But of course there´s more
Slightly prefer this to Highway 61 Revisted
For me, this album is a masterpiece and in my top 3 all time Dylan albums ~ and possibly my top 20 albums of all time. The standout tracks for me are : It's Alright Ma; Mr Tambourine Man; Subterranean Homesick Blues; She Belongs To Me; Love Minus Zero; Gates Of Eden; It's All Over Now ~ so 7 out of 11 tracks are exceptional ~ which is quite a decent 'hit rate'.
Mr. Tambourine Man is his best song, and the album holds up pretty consistantly the whole way through
The album that started the changing of the tides from folk-star to folk rock-star. The start of the best period of his career has highlights right across the album and while the sound has changed, the way he tells stories through song has only strengthened.
I really love that album, this is the one that after I heard I changed my opinion on Dylan. Mr. Tambourine Man, It's Alright Ma and Maggie's Farm are ones of the best ever made. And then there is an incredible Subterrenean Homesick Blues that I love.
El primero de la trilogía de Bob Dylan. El album que marcó su transición musical entre el folk y el folk rock, por el que fue muy criticado, como veríamos más adelante en las letras de Rainy Day Women en Blonde on Blonde. Bringing It All Back Home demuestra un estilazo desde su inicio con Subterranean Homesick Blues hasta sus clásicos Mr. Tambourine Man o It's Alright Ma. El comienzo de la golden era del mejor escritor de la música popular de la historia.
