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 87.3/100, a mean average of 86.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 87.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.0.

I listen to this as the 17-track version with Purple Haze f.ex, and will rate is at such. Jimi impresses with his guitarwork, and all songs hold up nicely. 1967 is probably the best year in music history (Sgt. Peppers, This album, The Doors, Velvet Underground etc). This album does get weaker towards the latter half, but it's still an amazing work of art. 9/10
I am going to review this as the seventeen track version which is how I listened to it. The talent of Jimi Hendrix can not be questioned but what this record shows when you look past the guitar skills is that he is a talented songwriter that has clear influences but uses his talent to push the genre forward. Otherworldly.
My track score = 90.45. Place in my top albums chart is 16th with a rating of100
isnt it a pity Purple Haze is not on this?????? :(
The great beginning of the near perfect 3 albums run and yet short but great discography by one of the best guitarists of all time.
I came waaay late to this album - and hat's off to his style and influence. I can imagine the impact it would have had. I enjoyed the album but to be honest it didn't blow me away having heard the progression of this rock over the years - but at the time it would have been so fresh
Hendrix had a habit of "fishing around" a bit on his albums. Having some concept, picking up his guitar, and chasing a sound until he found it, letting the audience in for small moments along the way. With Are You Experienced, he just hits you in the mouth with the sound he wanted out of the gate, and sits in the sweet spot until he's done. It doesn't quite strike me the same way that Axis does, but it's a masterclass on the guitar, without a doubt.
With this one it was immediately clear to everyone what he was aiming for. The aesthetic was there and it was finished. He however still moved with his new style inside other genres, from R&B to jazz. And even though that's admirable, I can only call this a stylistic change yet, in contrast to the birth of a new genre that Electric Ladyland was. It also causes the album to feel a bit messy, but that's all the negative things I can say about this album. It's not godly, only genius.
Una bestia. Eso era Hendrix. Junto con Van Halen, los dos guitarristas más revolucionarios e influyentes de la historia.
Este disco cambió la forma de tocar la guitarra. Fue una revolución.
100/100. Mejor la versión USA.
