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 has a mean average rating of 73.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 73.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.1.

A very disappointing piece of work. After Summertime Blues, which I think is an excellent track, it deteriorates rapidly. Hard to listen to all the way through more than once.

Covers of Eddie Cochran, B.B. King, and Mose Allison? And present it as heavy metal? Amazing.

A good debut from a seminal San Francisco band. Their first record is loud and raw heavy metal. They refine their sound on the next album bringing in a more psychedelic vibe. Heavy stuff for the times.

Has a garage band feel to it, and that's not a bad thing. Lots of energy - the guitars are thrashing, the vocals are wailing, and the bass/drums are pounding. Bet they had a helluva good time putting this together.

Another disappointment. After Outsideinside, I wanted to see what else these guys had in store. This was cited as their best by many people, and in all honesty, it's really boring. The guitar work is pretty good, and the lyrics are interesting at times, but it's just bland sounding. As Bork stated, the cover of Summertime Blues certainly isn't better than the original. Ah well. Next.

The original is by Eddie Cochran (who also co-wrote it with Jerry Capehart) back in 1958. Peaked at #8 on the Billboard Charts in september that same year. Best covers are by The Who (from Live at Leeds) and Brian Setzer (from the La Bamba soundtrack).

Is this band covering Summertime Blues too? When was the original made?
