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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 82.8/100, a mean average of 82.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.7.

I love live music, even recorded, but this was not an album I was raised on. Great stuff, but I sense the original tracklist was more essential and revelatory in an environment where there was a lot less live material available to fans.

One of the greatest live albums ever recorded. It's a particular point of interest in The Who's discography as it's one of the first times every single member shines. Keith Moon was the most exceptional part of My Generation, John Entwistle's moment in the sun was A Quick One, The Who Sell Out was Roger, and Tommy was Pete's baby. Everybody is absolutely great here. This is where they started working as a unit rather than individuals.

The Who have recorded some great tracks, particularly on Who's Next, but for me this is not the great live album it should be. Compared to Thin Lizzy's Live and Dangerous and UFO's Strangers in the Night, it sounds a little stifled. One of my measures for rating a live album is 'Do the tracks sound better than the studio versions? Has something been added other than random extended instrumental passages'? There are very few live albums I prefer listening to than the studio versions and this is one of them. Recorded live music is a difficult one to pull off without significant studio tinkering (in most cases).

I prefer the 1970 version. It contains the most interesting moments of the show. So bad that there is no video of this show. The Who were great musicians but also realy funny guys. I love Townshend's jokes between the songs.

Credo sia impossibile, forse ( forse, perché esiste "Rock'n'roll animal"… ), trovare un disco dal vivo più riuscito di questo. ARCHETIPO.

At that time the Who were the best live band, by a significant margin. Can still beat most bands now. Energy, power, commitment, adrenaline pouring out of Roger, Pete, and Keith. Thankfully John stopping the band spin off into space. The Who here are enjoying their confident ability to perform and communicate like few others. A powerhouse of an album. The benchmark for live albums, ever. Most groups could not approach this level live, and the songs are amazing!

A superb live recording. It's a shame The Who couldn't again achieve this live magic on vinyl later when they had a larger catalog from which to pull more songs.
