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 15% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 74.4/100, a mean average of 74.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.9.

Electric Mud is a kind of musical masterpiece that is largely forgotten by many, but this time it made me think,´this is hip hop.. Funkadelic guys must have listened to this very much...

Muddy hated this album and I can see why. It's just a commercial move to uplift Muddy's career jumping on the bandwagon of blues based psychedelic rock of that time.

His golden stuff has to be found on other albums.

If you let go of your image of Muddy Waters for a moment, and listen to this record strictly as a heavy metal LP, you will realize how good it really is.

Very Good to excellent blues /Hard rock with psychedelic tones album. I think some that do not agree do not realize this is from 1968.

I fail to see why this album is maligned by so many. This is the missing link between blues and hard rock....and Muddy's rendition of Let's Spend the Night Together is absolutely scorching.
