Their result for The Bob Dylan Album for YOU Test ...
Highway 61 Revisited
90% Folky, 100% Lyrics, 83% Rock, 79% Bobby
Pick anything from '62 to '76, '89 to the present, and you'll probably like some of it.
Here are a few of my favorites, that you may not have gotten around to, yet:
On The Bootleg Series Vol. 1-3, you simply must hear Idiot Wind and If You See Her, Say Hello. Tangled Up in Blue, He Was a Friend of Mine and Talkin' Bear Mountain Picnic Massacre Blues are also worth a listen. (Hopefully you can get just these specific tracks; I'm not sure how much you'll get out of this disc set; I think the rest is cool to hear once, but maybe not over and over.)
The Rolling Thunder Revue (Live 1975) is amazing. This is Dylan in his prime, in my opinion, and if I had to pick a best (non-compilation) record, this would be in the top 3. I think learning its backstory adds to its value; if you buy it, it comes with good liner notes (written by someone who followed the tour around).
No Direction Home is also great (as is the film) -- I think it is the best compilation album. It has a lot of previously unreleased material from '62 through '66. Some of disc two is also on disc two of Live 1966 (Royal Albert Hall), notably Ballad of a Thin Man, Like a Rolling Stone and Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat which is a bit of a letdown, but the songs still rock. However, saying that, do listen to the first disc.
Political World, Everything is Broken, and Man in the Long Black Coat make Oh Mercy worth a listen. While not one of my top albums, those three songs are pretty good.
Do I have to mention Blood on the Tracks, Desire, and Another Side of Bob Dylan, let alone Freewheelin'? Probably not. Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid is great.
Here's a breakdown of a lot of his work, and everything this test recommends:

|High Folk||Bob Dylan||Times||All Back Home||Highway 61||High 'Bob'|
|High Folk||John Harding||Live 1964||All Back Home||Live 1966||Low 'Bob'|

|Low Folk||Pat Garrett||Live 1975||Love & Theft||Blonde o. B.||High 'Bob'|
|Low Folk||New Morning||N. Skyline||Basement Tapes||B. o. Blonde||Low 'Bob'|
