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 5% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.9/100, a mean average of 76.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.4.

If your pseudo-music expert friends keep throwing around the term "Paisley Underground" and do not cite this album in their analysis, then it's time to call your pseudo-music expert friends on their BS!!! 1982's "The Days of Wine & Roses" would be situated at the top of my Paisley Underground list of all-time greats! Each of the nine songs featured on the album amble along in a seeming Heroin haze fresh off repeated trips with The Velvet Underground & Nico. Steve Wynn does a remarkably accurate impression of Lou Reed's long lost little brother, and his bandmates seem to be VU re-incarnated. An all-time favorite!!!

A very good alt rock album. No weak spots, just a bunch of great songs.

This album is excellent...tragically overlooked masterpiece. Brilliantly played nuerotic postmodern psychedelic rock - a kind of bridge between Television and The Gun Club.

The Dream Syndicate constantly gets overlooked. That could be because their successive records were awful, or that they just ended up being a bit too obscure. Either way, Days of Wine and Roses is a solid rock landmark of alternative rock, whether anyone knows it or not.
