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 81.0/100, a mean average of 80.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.5.

Of course Hurt is fantastic, but versions of When the Man Comes Around, I Hung My Head, Personal Jesus and In My Life remain beautifully fragile and moving too.

I love this album to death but I rarely listen to it because whenever I do it just ruins my day. This album is the definition of a swansong.

Cash's goodbye to the world. It's a harrowing, sad, and reflective. I will never not be emotional listening to this great album

A brilliant covers album. I prefer Cash's versions of Hurt and Personal Jesus to the originals, and his takes on The Man Comes Around, I Hung My Head and Streets of Late so are all great.

He really does a good job covering these great songs, but I actually prefer Trent Razor's Hurt version (the original one).

Great disco, and great production by Rick Rubin.
I don't like: too much compression.

Most of the songs on this that Cash had done before were better the first time around (his voice is really going here). But his tackling of songs like Bridge Over Troubled Water and Personal Jesus make this a pretty unique entry in the Cash catalog. Hurt is obviously the centerpiece, and that along with We'll Meet Again evoke genuine emotion with the benefit of hindsight.
