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 Bayesian average rating of 66.8/100, a mean average of 65.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 65.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.3.

A nice debut for Elton not highly regarded due to the success that followed but this rocks the hardest.

Not bad at all and certainly a rawer and less polished Elton than future releases would be. No great standout tracks but it's certainly passable with strong hints of The Band and The Beatles throughout. Not Elton's best then but still good but that best was definitely still to come.

Elton's debut is a little weak but is still a good listen. He would improve on it over the next 9 years before releasing his worst record Victim Of Love. Tracks to take notice of here are Empty Sky, Skyline Pigeon, Sails & Hymn 2000 an ok record.

couple very strong tracks on this album - Skyline Pigeon being one which is still performed live - a testament to its enduring appeal

First effort from Elton & Bernie. As we know, hasn't stood the test of time. Haven't really found the identity that would take them on to huge international success. Winsome vocals, undefined lyrics, all overly orchestrated. Fail.
