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 has a Bayesian average rating of 72.9/100, a mean average of 71.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 72.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 19.4.

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!

Adam Duritz and is stream-of-consciousness-lyrics! Counting Crows are most known for this album and at the time time it sounded so unique and different than other bands.

Later, with each subsequent release we come to find that this is really all the Crow's can do. And Duritz's sad sap, me against the world and women schtick gets harder and harder to listen to as he gets older and no wiser.

But August and Everything After is excellent.

Round Here is one of my all time favorite songs and a stellar opener flexing the lyrical muscle of Duritz with lines such as "step outside the front door like a ghost into a fog where no one notices the contrast of white on white". Excellent.

Anna Begins is the next standout. Omaha, Mr Jones, Rain King, Murder Of one, Sullivan Street are all excellent.

Time and Time again and Perfect Blue Buildings are good but meander for too long

Ghost Train and Raining Baltimore are bland meh.

A classic release in the 90's and now with some time added on it is still excellent but not a masterpiece.

Adams Duritzs choice of lyrics and melody stand out on this record.

This is the album I think most of the teenagers in the 90's had in their houses, or that's my thought, but it sounds bland sometimes. If thi album lasted only 40 minutes or so it would be greater, ohhh the lyrics

I'll admit that I like Mr. Jones, although it might just be because of nostalgia and the fact that whats-his-name's voice harkens back to a very specific period in music. The rest is pretty worthless though - unexcited, unadventurous 90s rock filled with clichés and phrases that sound meaningful but are really just pandering to people who think namedropping Elvis and Jesus makes a song good.

Piffle. This was confirmation that the musical revolution of 1991 would be quickly taken over by "safe" acts with the right name and look but none of the songwriting chops.
