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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 79.7/100, a mean average of 79.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.4.

Hound Dog, Heartbreak Hotel, and Jailhouse Rock are awesome.

Say what you will, there is no denying the man's talent. A fine compilation but there are better one's out there.

There's no doubting the man's talent and great voice. It's just that some of the tracks on here sound a little bit dated...

Everything in the first half is great, while the only songs that are worth while in the second are "Love Me Tender," "AWYWM," and the legendary "I Want You, I Need You, I Love You."

This is Elvis' first compilation from 1958 and it features most of his hit singles that did not get an album release back then, including Hound Dog, Don't Be Cruel, Jailhouse Rock and most of his pre-Army smash hits. This is a must listen and a must have!
