Well... I guess trhat's all. But before sharing the complete data (not individual votes, but total votes of each kind for every song).

But before that I want to categorize the albums in 5 (100-85), 4 (85-75), 3 (75-62), 2 (62-48) and 1 star (less than 48), as I see there seem to be those blocks in the rankings.

5 stars (I would call it "masterpieces")
Blood On The Tracks
Highway 61 Revisited
Bringing It All Back Home
Blonde On Blonde

4 stars (I would call it "great albums")
Time Out Of Mind
The Times They Are A-Changin'
Desire
John Wesley Harding
The Freewhelin' Bob Dylan
Oh Mercy
Love & Theft

3 stars (I would call it "good albums")
Tempest
Modern Times
Street Legal
Planet Waves
Another Side Of Bob Dylan
Slow train Coming
World Gone Wrong
The Basement Tapes
Traveling Wilburys vol. 1
New Morning
Nashville Skyline
Infidels
Shadows In The Night
Shot Of Love
Pat Garrett & Billy The Kid
Good As I Been To You

2 stars (I would call it "just for fans")
Together Through Life
Bob Dylan
Saved
Empire Burlesque
Self Portrait
Fallen Angels
Traveling Wilburys vol. 3
Christmas In The Heart
Triplicate
Under The Red Sky

1 star (I would call it "the prescindible ones")
Dylan
Down In The Groove
Knocked Out Loaded

It has been a pleasure. But it will be even more if you all leave some comments.

You're very welcome.

But the comments I expect aren't people thanking me, but thoughts about the results. :wink:

A couple of comments.

Re the studio albums, I think 75 to 62 is a wide range for 'Good'. It covers everything from 'mostly 4* to almost all 3*. I'd split the category into 3a Very Good, down to the Basement Tapes and 3b Good for the lower half.

Re the live albums I feel the jury's marks are a bit tough. Hard Rain and Live 75 have claims to be masterpieces. Several of the 2 rated ones are to my mind better than that and better than the 2 rated studio albums.

You are quite diplomatic about the raw data. I wonder if you found any evidence of trolling, defined as people voting Trouble 5* and Every Grain of Sand 1*. Did you feel the need to clean the data in any way?

My comment in one word:
RELIEF.

I had feared this was a forum of fanatics rating anything Dylan does as *extraordinary* with a tendency - another typical trait of fanaticism - to overrate the latest work.
It is not.
It's a clever universe where the 60s holy trilogy remains up above and over, Desire is an excellent album and where we are all happy to have Dylan still around, though we all know that what he does now hardly enters the ranking of the 100 best things he did.

So my warm *thank you* is double.

No. I think no one wanted to troll it. But maybe not everyone had put the same accuracy in voting, and some people were a little "superficial" in their votes, being too extreme. But well, this didn't troll the results, but might give more weight to the distances between ratings of some people than others'. The fact that very few people voted for some albums might make the results less credible.

About the ranges...You all are free to do your own. I suggested those because I seemed to see some blocks in the results. The results are the only fixed thing here, not the conclusions.

Really, it isn't. But there's still some shocking things if you analyze the results accurately: there's really someone considering 2x2 a masterpiece? Or Precious memories? Or 3 people considering Property of Jesus is too? Someone can really hate Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands? Well... It seems there is. But these votes are anecdotal and don't have a real importance in the ranking. Or yes. Maybe that avoided Sad Eyed Lady to rank higher. But well... If someone really can hate it that might be the difference.

To the best I can tell, the percentage of Masterpiece votes list is the most accurate to what is probably the truth. I mean, look at this top 20:

1 Tangled Up In Blue 95,12
2 Like A Rolling Stone 94,83
3 Visions Of Johanna 92,50
4 It's Alright, Ma (I'm Only Bleeding) 91,38
5 Desolation Row 91,38
6 It's All Over Now, Baby Blue 89,66
7 Blind Willie McTell 89,19
8 Not Dark Yet 86,36
9 Simple Twist Of Fate 85,37
10 Don't Think Twice, It's All Right 84,21
11 A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall 84,21
12 Every Grain Of Sand 83,78
13 Idiot Wind 82,93
14 Subterranean Homesick Blues 82,46
15 Mr. Tambourine Man 82,46
16 Ballad Of A Thin Man 81,03
17 You're A Big Girl Now 80,49
18 All Along The Watchtower 80,49
19 Love Minus Zero / No Limit 79,31
20 The Times They Are A-Changin' 78,95

Seems pretty close, right?

Not Dark before Hard Rain and Idiot Wind (or Times) sounds still blasphemy, to me, but yes, it's close to *the truth*.

Yeah, that bugs me too. Moreso, the first two. I think the Times is in a good spot. But this is the first grouping that, I think, nails the first three. I think VoJ, LARS, and Tangled are his three best songs, and it seems as that is the general consensus here as well. I'm even very pleased with the next two. It's Alright, Ma and Desolation Row. From there, it starts to wobble a bit for me. But I think it really nails the first 5 spot on

What a job you have done!

The strangest result I have seen here is the album ratings. I have been a fan since 1970 and attended 263 Dylan-concerts from 1978 til this month, and I of course know fans from all over the world. A lot of times during the years the following question comes up; "What's your favorite album"?. The usual most mentioned albums in my memory is "Highway 61 Revisited", "Blonde On Blonde", "Blood On The Tracks" and "Street Legal". If I should make it 5, I think it is Desire or Time Out Of Mine.

It's one strange thing about this: On your lists "Street Legal" is way behind the others of the 6 I have mentioned. As I most often go for "Street Legal" (closest opponent Blood On the Tracks) I very often meet people that vote for Street Legal - but, that's when I talk with European fans. If I'm in US (I have seen more Dylan concerts in US than any other country) I don't hear many fans voting for Street Legal, and also maybe they more often go for the 60's albums; even the young fans. Do you know how many of your voters come from Europe and how many from US, and from the rest of the world?

I'm not sure about this, but I think I have read somewhere that "Desire" is Dylan's most sold album ever? It could be interesting to study the difference between your list and the sales list for the whole world.

Can't speak for all Americans, but Street Legal has four of Dylan's least loved songs.

In the ranking of the songs from original studio albums exclusively (no outtakes, Bootleg Series, or different versions), four of the nine from Street Legal (We Better Talk This Over, True Love Tends to Forget, Is Your Love in Vain?, and Baby Stop Crying), rank lower than 200 (204, 226, 284, 285, respectively). That's pretty low out of 470 songs. But then consider this, too: the studio list includes the dozens of Sinatra covers, songs from Self Portrait (original), Dylan, Christmas in the Heart, Saved, Under the Red Sky, Down in the Groove, and Knocked Out Loaded.

I don't know if GuillemTM has a list of Dylan compositions only, but I'm guessing all four songs would be in the lower 10%.
