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 has a Bayesian average rating of 71.8/100, a mean average of 70.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 70.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.5.

The legend of Lightnin' Hopkins...from humble beginnings in Centerville, Texas to meeting Blind Lemon Jefferson at the age of 8... to a lifetime of music before his death in 1982 from esophageal cancer. Simply a legend. A series of sides recorded in 1954 for Herald Records in Houston and released as 7 inch singles, this album was compiled and released in 1960 (despite its 1955 listing here). "Lightnin' and the Blues" is a great album full of soul, great songs, and lively acoustic blues guitar.

Best tracks: Evil Hearted Woman, Sick Feelin' Blues, and Blues for my Cookie.
