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 tracks can have several thousand ratings)

This track is rated in the top 1% of all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 93.8/100, a mean average of 93.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 94.0/100. The standard deviation for this track is 9.9.

The Byrds made a great cover from a fine Dylan record.
Hendrix transform a Dylan song into a outstanding psych rock classic.

One of the most amazing covers of all time. However I wouldn't call this Jimi's best song by a longshot.

Yes, the best cover of all time. The genius of the singer and the song. Hendrix takes Dylan's spooky folk tale and takes the foreboding the song evokes and turns it into an apocalyptic comedown to the sixties and the summer of love in the era of race riots and Vietnam. Although it was recorded in '68, this track, along with the Stones, gimme shelter, is the explosive finale and the ultimate not so fond farewell to the most significant decade in popular culture. Superb.

Combination of all that was good in rock music. The guitar playing is one of a kind.

Best cover of all time? I don't know.

Best cover I've ever heard? Definitely.

Perhaps the greatest cover there is. Bob Dylan live performances are actually influenced by the way Jimi Hendrix played it.

So...you hate it because it's a cover song? That's pretty narrow minded....

Classic. Original Dylan version is good, but this, is absolutely fantastic.
