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 6% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.8/100, a mean average of 76.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.2.

Holds up and sounds fresh even today. Heavy Stones and Faces influence with just a little bit of Skynyrd and Guns and Roses. It's good beyond the singles.

One of the best albums of 1990. One of the best southern rock albums ever. After much of the music released in the New Wave 80s, this was a breath of fresh air. We were exposed to real rock music again!

Esordio con già tutti quegli ingredienti che i Black Crowes manterranno per tutta la loro carriera, variandoli solo di poco. Ci sono principalmente Rolling Stones e Lynyrd Skynyrd nelle influenze palesi dei Corvi Neri ma, a spiccare in mezzo a brani originali nel senso che li hanno scritti loro ma che originalissimi non sono, è una strepitosa cover della "Hard to handle" di Otis Redding: raro trovare una band agli esordi che sappia già proporre una cover degna dell'originale se non addirittura superiore.

Nothing innovative or surprising here, but that's not always a bad thing. This is just some straightforward blues rock with some catchy tracks using hooks recycled from classics acts two decades prior. With that said, if the Stones made this album in the early 70's it would probably be considered a classic Stones record.
