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 78.7/100, a mean average of 77.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.3.

Consistently good, but nothing that goes above and beyond like in III and IV.

It's hard to remember what a shock this was, to hear the man in black return in such a stripped down, basic collection, with that beautiful voice still there, but now betraying its age and vulnerability. Just compare this Delia's Gone to the classic version.

Not as good as some of the later albums but a good start to the Rick Rubin era

Performance is good, but the songs aren't terribly strong.

No frills, old-style country, featuring the man and his guitar. Highly recommended for those who like to go back in history.

This started another re-birth of Johnny Cash. Solid, but a little overrated.
