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)

If you were expecting an album built around the hit single, think again. Nearly every song on this is just as, or very close to being just as strong as 'More Than a Feeling'. Very consistent with most having that classic rock feel. You can hear shades of early Uriah Heep coming through if you were looking at any comparison. Worthy of it's status as a classic 70's album.
This album opens with two of the best rock songs ever recorded. They are both absolute classics and make this album a must listen even if the rest of the album was poor which it isn't. While it may not be up to the standard of those first 2 songs the rest of the record is still great. We are treated to phenomenal guitar playing across the whole release with there being some extremely impressive work on Smokin'. The vocal performance is outstanding as wellmand is one of the greatest ever on a rock album. The group just seemed to know how to make electric songs that are so catchy and infectious which makes them so enjoyable to listen to. The music is pure genius and is just so much fun. Overall, a record packed full of quality and great songs that is an absolute blast to revisit time and time again.
I would argue that this is the best rock album of all time. Play it loud.
I'm not sure why this is rated so poorly; every track is very enjoyable. Electric guitar and organs all over the place... what could be better?

This is a good classic rock and great pop rock album, first three tracks set the bar very high, but rest of the album isn't much worse, just not that great.
Comfortably and undeniably in the top echelon of greatest guitar albums in history and there about’s in the conversation for greatest debut in history and greatest album - period. All quite remarkable considering Tom Scholt didn’t begin playing guitar until 21 years of age, that a large proportion of it was recorded in Toms basement studio and vocalist Brad Delp had only just joined the band following auditions to find a new front man. Ridiculous
Many adjectives come to front of mind to describe ‘Boston’ the album, big, bold, anthemic, timeless but the word that hits the nail on the head is …..
Known this album since the 80's and can't recall how I got into it - or even why I would go for this big rock sound - perhaps the solo's? Anyway - decades later I still love this album and this band.
There is nothing else out there like the band Boston. They have their own sound. Debut is an all-time great...unique. 100
