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 5% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.1/100, a mean average of 76.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.0.

Enjoyed. Different direction for sure, however the Boss pulled it off well.

Western Stars has grown on me. Some beautiful lyrics. Tracks that stand out for me are Tuscon Train, There goes my Miracle & Hello Sunshine.

I applaud the production, as it makes decent lyrical content sound better. Not as good as Wrecking Ball but I'll gladly settle for records like this from an American treasure who is entering the sixth decade of his career.

Wow. I didn't really expect this to be this good when I started to listen. But I was convinced after the first three songs. It's americana, it's bombastic but somehow most of the songs remain intimate.

Another 5 star album in the discography of The Boss. He has added a new style and this is a perfect album for a man pushing 70. Would not be upset if this was his final studio album.

This is well beyond my expectation for Bruce at this stage of his career. Every album after The Rising has been average at best and High Hopes was even worse than that.
Still, this one is an unexpected beauty. Lush and orchestral, with Bruce crooning like never before, it really is a unique chapter in his discography, with his usual character driven storytelling. This is the kind of music that goes well with his age and maturity, songs are gorgeous, yet go very well with the worn out man on the road lyrical themes.
Makes me excited about the announced E Street album next year.
