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 mean average rating of 74.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 73.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 11.2.

This is her best album of the 70's, her albums are full of great cover versions of country/rock songs. She makes each song her own It's So Easy, Blue Bayou, Poor,Poor Pitiful Me and Old Paint are good examples of that. The whole album is great nothing weakens it, her voice seems to be at its peak.

So sad Linda's music did not age that well. She was (and probably still is) one of the best folk rock artists in the history of rock music and this is, almost definitely, her best album.
