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 86.4/100, a mean average of 85.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 86.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.2.

An experimental and rewarding record that is the very enjoyable to explore and analyse. On here we get a few of Hendrix's best ever songs with the peak of this coming right at the conclusion of the record. The quality of tracks 15 and 16 are undeniable and are arguably his two greatest ever songs. We also are treated to two incredible progressive songs that gives us a chance to truly listen and appreciate his skill. The two songs I am referring two are Voodoo Chile and 1983...(A Merman I Should Be) with both of these requiring patience when you first listen to them but after you begin to understand them better they will soon become a highlight of this album. The performances across the whole release are very strong with this probably being the best we have heard on a Hendrix record in terms of diversity and quality. However, there is filler on here and it is tough to sit through the entire run time and not lose interest at times due to a few songs that just feel insignificant. Overall, this is his best work with the brilliant instrumentation and great depth behind the music making it a thoroughly enjoyable listen.
One of the greatest rock albums I've ever heard. The title is fitting because this thing is electrifying from start to finish.
A classic that stands the test of time. Jimi's version of 'All Along The Watchtower' is simply remarkable - giving the Dylan acoustic song a whole new life & audience. I have included Jimi's version in my 'top 100 Dylan covers' chart ~ it was one of the first to be added to the chart - the most iconic of Dylan covers.
Strong all the way, All along the Watchtower, Voodoo Chile (Both versions), Crosstown traffic. All very strong, but experimental songs. Would've been interesting to see what Jimi could have done after this album, because this is simply amazing. Not as strong as AYE, but definately worth the listen.
Highs: All along the Watchtower, Crosstown traffic, Voodoo Chile (Slight return)
Lows: Little miss strange, Long hot summer night
Not my favourite album ever, but i guess the best played ever...Talent at its top, impossible to reach... Actually subjective tastes have more parameters than single talent, but under this point of view, cannot be better.
Greatest Hendrix record, very entertaining and experimental at the same time. 1983 is underrated, and Voodoo Child sounds like invention of heavy metal.
All Along the Watchtower is EVERYTHING!
Strangely this album feels as experimental as it is solid. He's nearly making electronic music with his guitar; the emphasis lies so much on sonic experimentation that I partly listen to it similar to how I would a '90s electronic album. He makes his guitar talk, and then turn into a rocket engine, and then a siren that Doppler effects away from you. And all the while he is consistent in what he's making; in hindsight we could call it the first glimpse of a metal album. But every genre from hard rock and punk to funk would take their two cents from Hendrix. Only on the track "Come On" we can hear the good old-fashioned swing from rock 'n' roll again, but the rest seem to have progressed to something entirely else, most clearly - of course - on Voodoo Child (both versions), which I think every metal band from Black Sabbath to Metallica have tried to remake. I would go so far to say that all of metal is simply covers of Voodoo Child in different styles. A slow, static, menacing rock beat, a prophetic, raw voice that leads you to the climax: intense guitar improvisation over thick layers of effects. It's as simple as it is genius, as popular music should be.
When it comes to guitar oriented rock albums, this is the epitome, the ultimate example. Excellent throughout.
