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 24% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 73.7/100, a mean average of 74.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 9.4.

Easily the best album they ever did. I'm amazed to see it listed here as six.

It's driving, gravely, trucker rock - BTO being BTO!

This release features two of their radio hits, Let It Ride and Takin' Care of Business (both of which are the final tracks of each side...why?).

My favourite track in this release is Welcome Home - track 2, which should have been the opener! It's an overlooked gem.

Overall, some strange track orders and forgettable fillers hold this back from being a 'classic' classic rock record. Check out Not Fragile if you're looking for a more cohesive release from these Canadian rock giants.

Classic Canadiana, and a pretty decent (if straightforward) classic rock album.
