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 88.5/100, a mean average of 87.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 88.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.0.

An exceptional album, among the best ever recorded. "Like a Rolling Stone" is among the best songs ever written. "Desolation Row" is, in my opinion, one of the greatest tracks ever created. Others may not share that opinion, but, for me, I believe it is incredible. 9.5/10!

This is essential listening with Dylan creating one of the greatest records of his career on here. It is consistent in style and tone leading to a cohesive listen that feels extremely fulfilling by the time you reach the end of the masterpiece that is Desolation Row. This isn't the only masterpiece that is present on this record either with Ballad Of A Thin Man and Like A Rolling Stone comfortably slotting into that category as well with the rest of the tracks being of a decent quality or better. The result of this is one of Dylan's most consistent records with there not really being a single weak track on here. Dylan himself is what propels this release to the levels it has reached with his guitar, piano and harmonica performances being of an incredible standard. He also conveys his personality and emotion through the instruments brilliantly making it so easy for us to connect to his music. Then there is the lyrics which are sensational and I am not surprised they have been analysed and dissected for over 50 years as they are that good. Overall, this is one of the most important albums in the history of music and the quality it has still holds up today making it a must listen.

Further down the electric guitar rabbit hole Dylan now starts to push the boundaries of how long a musical story can be within popular music and in doing so creates some of the greatest pieces of musical literary genius of all time.
