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 83.4/100, a mean average of 82.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.4.

That psychedelic guitar, wow! So laid back and yet so full of energy, this was Hendrix. 'Wait Up Until Tomorrow' is a personal favourite.

Still a damn good album but it doesn't reach the same heights as the last, and finds lower lows... but not by much. Even the weakest songs are still good by most artist's standards.
It still has the Hendrix/Experience sound in spades, and that's just not something I imagine you're going to find anywhere else.

Mi album favorito de Hendrix sin duda. Un album donde se arriesgó a experimentar con nuevos sonidos y efectos pero sin alejarse de sus raices.
Se enfoca más en su habilidad como escritor pero sigue deleitandonos con su virtuosismo en la guitarra

Axis: Bold as Love is a very good album without any bad songs. Though the album has fewer iconic jams than its predecessor, it's much more cohesive. Its peaks are up there with any other music that Jimi and/or The Experience ever recorded and its valleys (if they can be called that) are decent at worst. "Little Wing" and "Bold as Love" are as good as any music there is and "If 6 Was 9" and "Castles Made of Sand" are also worthy of being noted alongside them.

The weakest Jimi Hendrix Experience album, but still good. Easy listen from start to finish, all the songs are good aside from EXP which isn't really a song.

The work Eddie Kramer did with Jimi Hendrix on the "Are you Experienced" and "Axis:Bold as Love" albums is ground breaking. The left to right paning on EXP, the extreme tone manipulation which would become the wah peddle and the advent of phase shifting which would become very popular with guitar players in the years to follow.

Oh, that "Little Wing", "Castles Made of Sand" and "Bold as Love" trio most be the perfect example of what guitar should sound.

Nice to see a lot of love for this album. often overlooked in favour of Electric Ladyland and Are You Experienced, this is a stunning album.
