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 2% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 78.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 79.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.3.

A great album which despite it's age doesn't sound that dated. The audio delivery from the re-issued vinyl is superb. Excellent psychedelic guitar throughout makes it a really immersive listening experience.

My favorite CCR album. Born On The Bayou is the show-stopper here. Probably the most true to the band's swamp rock genre.

This occupies a nice space where the band gives you a couple of straightforward would-be classics, but is also able to stretch out without being totally self-indulgent.

Fin dal titolo, l'album dei Creedence più vicino alle sonorità "swamp", quelle del delta del Mississippi, un rock molto legato al blues e che evoca demoni e trasuda umidità.

Another enjoyable Creedence Clearwater Revival record. Bayou country, isn't as brilliant as, green river, but it's yet another great rock'n'roll LP from one of America's great rock'n'roll bands. Proud Mary, is a classic song, as is the title track. Not their best then, but still good.

Born on the Bayou makes this record. The rest of it is not bad, but there is a definite drop-off after Bayou.

I put this as their second best album real close behind Cosmo's Factory. They defined their sound with this record.
