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 81.4/100, a mean average of 80.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.9.

Jimi on fine form with some smoking guitar playing on what is (for me) a massively over-rated album.. a decent rather than exceptional album - I could really do without the Buddy Miles vocals , especially the scat singing...
My favorite by Hendrix!!
Love this album!
I have listened to this album regularly since 1972, and it gets even better all the time.
No fillers just bangers.
Jimi's guitar sound is from another dimension.
The first bars of Machine Gun is magical.
A great album, but sub-par when compared to Hendrix's other work
Brilliant live album with a batch of totally new songs. First two showcasing the wizard he was on guitar. With a complete new band, a slight different sound than with previous outings. Overall a good listen from start to finish
Six good tracks on this live album,four of them writen by Jimi. Musically very strong, lyrically not as strong as previous output.
All 3 of Jimi's studio albums are considered Rock essentials, but if you're a guitarist, I would call this record just as important to hear. Whether you agree with it or not, Jimi is consistently cited as the greatest guitarist of all time, and he proves it on his solos here.
you come for the guitar work, and you stay, well, for the guitar work
Stunning , absolutely stunning
