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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.8/100, a mean average of 77.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 11.7.

I began doing a 'top 100 Dylan covers' chart and guess what? The first Dylan cover that came to mind was The Byrds' version of 'Mr Tambourine Man". It is one of those covers, where it becomes so much bigger than the original - and to think they only used one of the 5 verses that Dylan composed ` now that is commercial magic. I have included The Byrds' cover in my 'top 100 Dylan covers' chart.
On this album there is a couple of nice songs with great Dylan-like, folky sound, but it has some filler too.
This album starts off with a 1-2 punch not seen in many other albums with the fantastic cover of Bob Dylan’s “Mr Tambourine Man” and the simply infectious “I’ll Feel A Whole Lot Better”. What follows is a consistently good collection of melodic pop songs that doesn't quite live up to the super high standards set by the first 2 songs. Still a very good album nonetheless.
Extraordinario debut de los Byrds y piedra angular del folk-rock.
This is where the journey begins for the Byrds - imprinting their iconic, pioneering, jangly folk rock sounds upon the world in this dizzying release.
I found the strength of their sound to correlate somewhat with tempo - the faster songs tend to stand out as bright spots amongst the slow, folk-drenched fillers.
Perhaps I should be more generous to this - it's The Byrds' debut release, after all. Certainly a pioneering record by McGuinn and co., first heard 'round the rocking world here in '65.

Best tracks: Mr Tambourine Man, I Feel a Whole Lot Better, Here Without You
Worst tracks: Spanish Harlem Incident, I Knew I'd Want You, It's No Use, We'll Meet Again
An album split between quality covers of old material, namely Dylan, and some interesting original compositions. The covers are solid reinventions of the material and not just ripoffs. They aren't the best Dylan covers ever (those would belong to The Jimi Hendrix Experience) but they are good. I prefer Dylan's Mr. Tambourine Man but theirs is still good. I like what they did with the reverb on"Don't Doubt Yourself, Babe". I can imagine that being revolutionary at the time. It's clear that they are an answer to the British Invasion and they even surpass some of the bands from across the pond but they are nowhere near the Beatles. Their use of electric instruments and their prevalence in music since is a clear mark of their influence. My favorite song is "I'll Feel A Whole Lot Better". The bonus song "She Has A Way" is also a good one.
This is definitely one of my favourite albums.
