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 81.4/100, a mean average of 80.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.4.

The violin and female back up singer helps this record enourmously. Hurricane is an all time great, and i also really like Mozambique

Hurricane is an amazing song, hut unfortunately nothing else on this album comes very close. But still there are plenty of good tracks here: Isis, One More Cup Of Coffee, Sara. It is also a very good follow-up to such a hard to compete with album as Blood On The Tracks is.

Aunque se suele relacionar a Dylan fundamentalmente con los 60, para mí sus mejores trabajos (este, sobre todo, y Blood On The Tracks) son de la década de los 70.

The most underrated album of his catalogue, it stands as one of Dylan's most unique and captivating works. It hits a couple lows (Joey and Mozambique), but the highs more than make up for them.

The album itself is pretty good, but Hurricane is hands-down one of the top 20 songs of all time.

It's a great testament to Dylan's fantastic catalogue of work that 'Desire' ends up as a very underrated body of work, completely new direction of sound of a more mature, well travelled man!
