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 Bayesian average rating of 78.4/100, a mean average of 77.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.1.

More Southern Rock-ish than the Alman Brothers 'Southern Harmony' has some excellent moments in album highlight "Remedy" followed by "Hotel Illness" and opener "Sting Me"

Unfortunately the remaining tracks are barely ok , whilst closer "Time Will Tell " is something of a snooze fest

Al secondo tentativo i Black Crowes fanno centro come poi non capiterà più, almeno non così. Il loro rock, così anacronistico nei primi anni novanta, così classico oggi, figlio degli Stones di "Sticky fingers" come dei Lynyrd Skynyrd e del southern rock in genere, parente prossimo del soul e più lontano dei Grateful Dead, qui viene servito con la scrittura migliore che sia mai riuscita ai fratelli Robinson. Il finale con la cover ( azzeccata ) di Bob Marley, poi, è la ciliegina sulla torta.

Perhaps not as catchy as their first, but it features some pretty shit hot guitar playing and the songwriting is considerably less derivative of Led Zeppelin. Remedy, Sting Me and Hotel Illness are the stand out tracks for me.

A great guitar album, Rich really made a name for himself with this one. Good live act too, free papers for attendees! Favs; 'Remedy' 'Sting me' and 'Hotel Illness'

The Crowes have never been about the "hits". This album marked the arrival of guitarist Marc Ford and a huge leap in songwriting. The interplay between Ford and Rich Robinson, the beginning of the move away from straight Southern boogie, the maturity of Chris Robinson's voice, and the massive leap in writing puts Shake Your Money Maker far back in the rear view mirror and opens the door for the great Amorica. A powerful 2nd album.

Definitely a step down from their previous outing. The hits are weaker and the filling is thinner. Not bad, but never gets going.
