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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 88.6/100, a mean average of 87.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 88.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.6.

The best album ever at the time of release, and it is still up there now! This is electronic Dylan at his absolute peak. With Highway 61 and Bringing it all back home Dylan had the best musical year of any artist in 1965

Very good, near, near-perfect. The songwriting is beautiful. The lyrics are provocative and complex, yet beautiful at some points. My only problem with this album is that a few miniscule sections in the early parts of the album are a little lackluster, and Desolation Row really is not a perfect finale to this album. STIL GREAT!

An unbelievable collection of songs that is only a slight degree of emotional resonance removed from my absolute favorite Dylan albums.

Not really sure what I can say about this one, it's one of the greatest and most beloved albums ever recorded and it's my personal favorite Dylan *studio* record. Clocking in at 50 minutes there isn't a single dull or uninteresting moment of the record. Bob's songwriting is very esoteric and abstract, a far cry from his earlier folk work and protest songs. His full step into electric music was an incredibly successful one.

Best Song(s): "Like a Rolling Stone" "Tombstone Blues" "Ballad of a Thin Man" "Queen Jane Approximately" "Desolation Row"

Aside from the iconic track 'Like a Rolling Stone', some of Dylan's greatest work is strung throughout this album. 'Ballad of a Thin Man', 'Queen Jane Approximately', and 'Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues' to name a few. One of Dylan's greatest releases without a doubt.

The only reason I don't think this is his best is because the production on Blonde on Blonde is better. Other than that, this album is absolutely perfect.

My introduction album to Bob Dylan. Even though I listen to it 55 years afters its release, I find it has some great lyrics and melody and I'm anxious to discover more of his discography. Fav tracks: Like a rolling stones, Thombstone blues and Desolation Row
