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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 79.8/100, a mean average of 78.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.0.

There are some great songs on here but on the whole it isn't anything that special even though it is a very enjoyable listen. Howlin' Wolf's voice is what steals the show for me. It is so bluesy and full of grit and it really does sound like he is howling the words at us. This makes it the perfect record for a little late night listen with the curtains drawn and the moon shining down on you as Howlin' Wolf guides you through these songs. The piano is also very strong on this record and gives probably the best instrumental performance on the whole release. It is followed closely by the guitar which suits the style they are going for perfectly. However, there are quite a few filler and unnecessary tracks on this release. That makes this very short album feel like it drags as you wait for the boring songs to end so you can go back to the superior ones. It is also quite plain with its instrumentation and I think they could experiment a little more with their sound. Overall, this is an album that if you are in the right environment then it is extremely effective but if your not then it is quite boring.
You cant go wrong way with the Wolf. A classic blues LP in every respect. Listen to it!
Bíblia do chicago blues... Padrinho do rock!
The only thing that sets his debut apart from this one is that he wrote all the tracks on his first album, while Willie Dixon wrote most of the tracks on this one. Other than that, this is still some straight undeniable blues classics.
Best tracks: You'll Be Mine, Little Baby, Down In the Bottom
Worst tracks: Wang Dang Doodle
Runaway winner for album of the year for 1962
I remember listening to this album late at night with a friend. Howlin' was howlin' at us. He was telling it like it is. That is a fond memory that I will never forget. Good times, good times!!
You know, all things considered, this does come from 1962, and Howlin' Wolf doesn't write most of the songs...he's still a good performer, but this isn't deserving of legendary status by any means.
