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 has a Bayesian average rating of 72.9/100, a mean average of 72.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 72.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 19.2.

This album has never done anything for me. There are nog bad songs on it, but it's just so boring. Best track for me is 'Rain King'
What a record this album is! It is full of high quality music throughout the whole release with no song feeling like filler or like it is being elongated. This leads to a very compact, cohesive and fulfilling listen for us as there is no time we aren't entertained on here. The piano is beautiful throughout and works wonders on the slower, ballad like songs as it fills them with emotion and passion. The other instrumentation is great with the drum work being another favourite as it carries some of the songs such as the album closer. On top of this we get the vocal and lyrics which I think are both great. Vocally, he is emotional, raw and feels like he is singing because he believes in the words that he is saying. This leads to some very open and fantastic moments for us to be able to enjoy and be able to connect to the group. Overall, I am shocked at the dislike for this record as it is so amazing quality wise and is also such an enjoyable record to listen to and I love revisiting it.
This record is dope.
Folks seem to really dislike Counting Crows for some reason. This music is a pure flow of emotion. It's clearly a debut, and it doesn't have the proper construction that Recovering the Satellites or This Desert Life does, but it's a great listen nonetheless. Also, you can't really teach the history of 90s Music without mentioning Mr. Jones.
Give it a higher rating than I usually would to compensate for the people giving this album more shit than it deserves, it's really solid and doesn't deserve a 73/100 score.
T. Bone Burnett produced this stupendous debut from Counting Crows. This alternative rock record effortlessly crosses over into the genres of Americana, folk, heartland rock and folk-rock. The songwriting is thoughtful and intimate. The sound is clean and polished, despite being a very organically produced record.
Career Highlight: Mr. Jones
Gems: Round Here, Anna Begins, Time and Time Again, Sullivan Street
Counting Crows went from complete obscurity to mega-stardom with this album which is one of the best debut albums in the 1990's
The package of great tracks ("Round Here" , "Mr Jones" , "Omaha" , "Sullivan Street" , "Rain King" , "Raining In Baltimore" ) with end to end superb musicianship make for an intoxicating mix
Don't judge this album by what C.C's became , judge it for what it is - one of the best albums from the 1990's
Wow, the marmite of albums judging by the comments. I actually liked this album and like this album now. My favourites are Round Here and Anna Begins. Yes it is all a bit overly sentimental but that doesn’t change the fact it is a good album. Enjoy!
Great album, I don't understand why it gets flak.
