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 is rated in the top 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 78.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 79.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.3.

he disco era stato questo "Car wheels on a gravel road" ! Un rock morbido ma non privo di spigoli, un approccio country per canzoni che spesso invece erano blues, un suono curato, corposo e robusto e delicato insieme; il tipico disco che non fa parte dell'epoca in cui esce ma non perché anacronistico, piuttosto perché senza tempo.

This album is Lucinda at her near best. Her voice conveys all of life’s challenges. A world-weary survivor.

Even if you don't like country, you can feel the emotions that she transmits

Full of personal ruminations on relationships and precise memories of her early life moving from town to town with her poet father, Car Wheels on a Gravel Road is the high point of Lucinda Williams's long career as one of America's finest country singer-songwriters. I saw Lucinda play at the Asheville Civic Center in support of this album, and it was one of those professional, veteran performances that cemented her in my mind as one of the greats. My then-girlfriend put "Right in Time" on a mix CD she made for me at the time, and although the relationship ended long ago, I still think of the song as a sweet, sexy celebration of what romance can be.

Car wheels on a gravel road, is one of the greatest country rock albums ever, and Lucinda Williams best. It's a stunning record full of great songs including, right in time, I lost it, and, metal firecracker, which is my favourite track here. It's a gritty, sweaty, and passionate record and everyone should have a copy. Essential.

"The Greatest American Album of All Time" (as one commentator here would have it)?? I don't know about that.... I kindly doubt it... But it's a rare gem, that's for sure.... as is Lucinda herself.... Me, I'd give slightly higher marks to her s/t debut, while her "Essence" and "World Without Tears" are excellent too.... but the double disc "Live at the Fillmore" takes the cake for me.... I've seen her live several times... was able to give her my heartfelt regards and my cowboy hat in K.C. at intermission ....For me the Fillmore album's the best album from Lucinda.... She's got a killer rocking band behind her on that date with an amazing lead guitar, and she sounds kinda wasted, rough, and ready to brawl... Listen to that f*cked-up vers. of "Essence" followed up by "Bleeding Fingers".... Don't know bout you, but gives me chills and makes me wanna pop one too many beers....
