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)

Solid Doors collection. Love the Peace Frog! Rating (79.55)
Only one song I rated below a 9.5... this album is insanely good. I'm trying to be realistic but I can't. It's just amazing.
Another superb offering by the Doors,this album shows off the bands considerable strengths,tight instrumental playing underscores memorable material with Morrison's authorative vocal ranges.
Maybe my 2nd favorite right after L.A. Woman. I do think that Hard Rock Cafe (side A) is better than Morrison Hotel (side B), but both are pretty damn strong. Highlights would be: "Roadhouse Blues", "Waiting For the Sun", "Peace Frog", "Ship of Fools", "Queen of the Highway", and "Maggie M'gill". Yep, that's a lot of highlights.
Great album !! Not their most cohesive, but great tracks throughout the record.
Standouts: Waiting for the Sun, Peace Frog, Queen of the Highway
The Doors kick off the 70s with a slight reinvention, promoting their blues forays, and rolling back the psychedelia, the poet Morrison takes a back seat to the rock Morrison, though he still shows up occasionally. Its not original or ground-breaking but its a nice change of pace after the disaster of their last album, and shows they still had something to say.
Top 3 Tracks
Waiting for the Sun
A comeback from Door after their terrible "Soft Parade", a return to the classic style. "Peace Frog" and "Waiting For The Sun" are underrated tracks in the Doors catalogue.
The first side is fantastic
In "Morrison Hotel" non ci sono più le "The end" o le "Light my fire"; al loro posto grandi rock'n'roll o blues come "Peace frog", "You make me real" o, soprattutto, "Roadhouse blues". Purtroppo la frase "il futuro è incerto e la fine è sempre vicina" suonerà tristemente profetica...
What a great album! .
Have you ever listened to an album for the very first time & it’s as if you’ve heard it before but you haven’t ? This is how I felt with Morrison Hotel. I’ve always loved albums with great opening tracks & this album knocks it out of the park with the 1, 2,3,4 punch of ‘Roadhouse Blues ‘ , ‘ Waiting For the Sun ‘ , ‘ You Make Me Real’ and the albums tour de force ‘ Peace Frog’ .
After the disappointing Soft Parade The Doors are back with a vengeance on this album number 5 .
