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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 79.0/100, a mean average of 78.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.6.

A very uneven album, but it still contains some absolute Cream classics: Crossroads, White Room, Politician, Spoonful, and Born Under A Bad Sign...
The power of Cream ( just like Jimi Hendrix) is best experienced from their live albums....
Actually... the best stuff and at the same time something boring stuff of Cream: great songs and musicians, sometimes too much concentrated to show their talent; anyway, one of the most talented albums ever :-)
Great follow-up to even greater predecessor. White Room is a classic, but other tracks are good too and the whole album makes great listen.
Hard rock kisses the blues and makes love forever. It's called "Wheels of Fire."
Grande momento da música!!
Classic power trio...
Spoonful , despite easily being my favourite track off of their debut, really doesn't do it for me as I don't enjoy aimless instrumental wandering... but still, you've got to respect the insane musicianship by the trio.
Same with Toad, though, whereas Traintime is much shorter and therefore more enjoyable and less rambling, and Crossroads is incredible with some of the best playing I've ever heard.
Second Best album after Disraeli Gears.
Obvious highlights - White Room, Crossroads, Born Under A Bad Sign, Politician, Those Were the Days
Enjoyable to me but not for everyone - Pressed Rat & Warthog, Deserted Cities of the Heart
Throwaways - Passing the Time, As You Said
It would be hard to not take a step backward after the awesome Disraeli Gears. If one steps back from expectations, this is still a very good album from talented, accomplished musicians.
Nothing more than a leftover album, only "White Room" here is really worth a listen and maybe the cover version of "Crossroads"
