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 mean average rating of 87.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 88.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.6.

Nearly his best work, with that said it still falls into an objective list of the 10 greatest albums of all time. That was just Dylan, man

I have become more of a Bob Dylan fan since reviewing this album last. I still think that it's missing some things but I don't think it's too lyrical as I'd said before. Like a lot of Dylan's material most of the songs are repetitive. I get a little tired of the endless verse, chorus, verse, chorus, instrumental break, verse, chorus. But, while it'd be unbearable if anyone else does it, Dylan is such a talented wordsmith that it can keep the listener entertained. I don't think the lyrics are particularly lacking on any track so I tend to prefer the more musical songs than the others. "It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry" is personal favorite followed by "Queen Jane Approximately". I appreciate every song but don't find myself itching to listen to something like "Desolation Row" very often.

I'm not really a big Bob Dylan fan, but out of the albums I've listen to from him, this is easily my favourite. Not a bad track on this one.

Truly one of the greatest albums of all time. Not to say this was the height of his career, as he would later, in the mid 70s create "Blood On The Tracks", but this certainly is arguably Dylan's most creative period. The classic, electric set of BIABH, Highway 61, Blonde on Blonde, had too much to offer. Dylan had nuthin' but bangers on here. The lyrics are some of his best to date, with songs such as Desolation Row, a stream of consciousness like song, and other "hard rock" tracks, most notably Tombstone Blues. The absurd amount of energy this album has, almost a live band kinda thing, makes this album even more of an exciting experience. I mean it's hard to get bored with non stop excellent lyrics and lively rock backing, along with some of Dylan's most classic vocal delivery to date on here. And I mean Like A Rolling Stone is on here. Just a grade A album.

Bob Dylan is not a folk singer, this is not folk music..Folk music is music that is passed from person to person, not written on a page...folk music is the music for instance, that was performed in appalachian area of the east..with unknown composers with origins from scotland, ireland, england, and absorbing american music of the time.

Great album by a legend in music. Like A Rolling Stone is a fav track of mine but the other songs are great too like Ballad Of A Thin Man.
