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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 81.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 81.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.9.

Easily album of the year (excluding White Light/White Heat). Brilliant songwriting, performances (Richard Manuel is one of the most underrated singers ever), even atmosphere.

It dangles somewhere between the blue-eyed soul and lo-fi ridiculousness of The Beach Boys and Rolling Stones simplicity... but it was before The Rolling Stones started making such music, so that's interesting. The way they sometimes sing/scream through each other like they're singing by a campfire without an audience reminds me of Exile On Main St.

Eleven songs that move your heart with their simplicity, honesty and beauty. Love the way these five talented musicians (with the help of Bob Dylan) mixed folk, country, rock and soul music and have come up with this magic and, in my opinion, revolutionary album. One of my favorite of all time.

Best Songs: "The Weight", "Tears of Rage", "I Shall Be Released"

Underrated ones: "We Can Talk", "Caledonia Mission", "Long Black Veil"

Trovo che in questo disco ci sia una grande differenza qualitativa tra i pezzi maggiori ( "The weight", "I shall be released" ) e la maggior parte degli altri. Rimane comunque un esordio da ricordare, non fosse altro che per ciò che la Band ha rappresentato.

Pales in comparison to their self-titled masterpiece, but is still a collection of excellent songs.

Beautiful album, you can feel the friendship, the love and the sadness that these guys felt at the time. The album itself it's like a capsule, where the exterior simply doesn´t exist, and the only thing that exist it's the music of the album. From beginning to end a masterpiece.

While it’s not surprising, given that The Band had spent years under the tuition of Ronnie Hawkins and Dylan, Big Pink is still one of the most assured and ephocal debut albums in the history of popular music.
