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 72.3/100, a mean average of 70.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 72.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.8.

Much more uneven album than the prior greats from the Eagles, without any career-defining highlights, so it's quite comfortably my least favorite of their "classic six" records. That said, there's still good stuff here—Heartache Tonight and In the City are fun, and Timothy Schmit gives a nice performance on I Can't Tell You Why. Though, to my ears, the two best songs are easily the non-hits Those Shoes and King of Hollywood.
They only scored one hit from this album in the UK, with Heartache Tonight just making No.40, but you have to remember they only ever scored one top 10 hit in their entire career. When I was young they were never on the radio as they weren't in the charts. So I listened to this album for the first time, not knowing any of the songs. I immediately recognized Barry De Vorzon/Joe Walshs In The City from The Warriors, classic tune. The Disco Strangler & The Greeks Don't Want No Freaks also standout tunes for me. This was their last but best album because of the variety contained in this album, which made it much more contemporary than previous albums.
I like the sound of the new bass player Timothy B. Schmit.
Slightly overlooked and underrated coming on the heels of the astoundingly successful Hotel California. In some ways, I like this one even more, especially for the great contributions from Joe Walsh.
The Long Run is a really good album. Musically it is very diverse. Throughout it is a departure from previous Eagles albums. Still, it is incredibly enjoyable and satisfying. The Long Run and Heartache Tonight are very catchy and the Sad Cafe sentimental, but it all works.
This is a really underrated album. I didn't buy it for years because it always had a bad reputation, but it's a very good record. The Eagles by this time are closer to Steely Dan than they are to themselves, around, desperado, time. The title track, and, heartache tonight, are the most famous tracks, but there are other gems to be found, especially in, the disco strangler, and my favourite, those shoes. The long run, is full of that late seventies coked up Californian cynicism that the Eagles were so good at capturing. Very good.
Not bad for a send-off album. My favorite is Greeks Don't Want No Freaks. Got sick of hearing In The City, but I tried to look past that. Not as good as earlier efforts, but still worth listening to. Released in early fall of 1979, my high school graduation year and beginning of college at IU. Was a big album played at the parties at IU, probably everywhere.
Not Hotel California, but still a strong Eagles album.
Good album from back in the day. In the City is really a standout. Not a single bad track, really, except perhaps Teenage Jail.
Good album with a few good tracks
