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 91.4/100, a mean average of 90.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 91.6/100. The standard deviation for this track is 12.8.

I find this song tiresome....He must have been reading too much modernist literature ( proust , etc) ..yes the world is falling apart and corrupt and you need a new consciousness to see the world the way it really is..science and religion won't help you ( a gross generalization) Dylan came to these conclusions from books..while other people such as gay people who are thrown outside of society from the day they are born without role models. they have to construct an objective map of the world naked..by the time they finish high school or college, they lived through everything he got from books..through six or seven didactic verses he slogs through clumsy metaphors trying to communicate something profound that only he as the teacher/preacher can give you....nothing new here

Replace the harmonica solo with a guitar solo and I would give this 90.

I heard this album for the first time yesterday! It changed my view on sixties music and Bob Dylan! This is the perfect ending to this and any album!
