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 83.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 83.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.3.

Bob Dylan's discography is legendary. This album, an undeniable classic, is the beginning of a string of legendary albums Dylan released in the 60s. I'd place it #4 in my list of best Dylan albums. Notable Tracks: Blowin' In The Wind, Don't Think Twice It's All Right, A Hard Rain's a-gonna Fall, Masters of War, Girl from the North Country.

What a brilliant album. Passionate and powerful throughout: Girl from the North Country, Don't Think Twice, Hard Rain, Oxford Town. Only criticism? I wish someone would take away that bloody harmonica.

An album that really had something to say. The songs range in topics from politically charged apocalypse ballads to the, at the time, present state of America and Americans. I find a fair amount of the songs to be too one-note and therefore can't enjoy them as much as somebody who might have been living in the situations that the songs are describing. "Masters of War" and "Talkin' World War III Blues" fall into this category for me. On the other hand, I enjoy the more melodic songs a lot. "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right" is a masterpiece on the realities of some relationships. It's not always the end of the world, sometimes things aren't meant to be and that's alright. It was probably the most well written song of all time up to that point. "Girl from the North Country" and "Corrina, Corrina" were among my favorite songs as well.

This is where Bob Dylan really shined. He came in with a bang on this record, and inspired a generation of singer-songwriters, who would come to idolize him, much to his dismay at times. But this album surely showcases his right to that kind of recognition. 10/10.

A resposta americana a invasão britânica. Valorização da poesia, não só na melodia.

The best traditional folk album I listened to, such a powerful attack on the Wars, both exterior, and interior, that where happening in the USA. And to add up with that, some pretty well written love songs, as usual for mister Dylan. A personal favorite of mine is "Girl From The North Country", although I found the Nashville Skyline version better.

Cinque canzoni: sono bastate "Blowing in the wind", "Masters of war"; "A hard rain's a-gonna fall", "Girl from the north country" e "Don't think twice, it's alright" a Bob Dylan per rivoluzionare il mondo della musica e non poco pure il mondo in generale. Le fondamenta della musica della seconda metà del secolo scorso e pure della prima di questo…
