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 Bayesian average rating of 71.6/100, a mean average of 71.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 71.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 11.7.

Remnants of the First Supergroup. One banger the other lot is a mainly forgettable mix of live performances and tapes picked from the studio floors

The first half doesn't do it for me. I don't enjoy Cream live. The short second half is brilliant, though, and is a noticeable change in sound than the previous albums. It's a damn shame they didn't create more music together.
Badge often gets all the credit, but the other two songs are great, especially What a Bringdown (even if I don't like Clapton's tone on it).

The worst of the four Cream albums, despite a few highlights. Badge is a shining light and one of the best Cream songs, but other than that there is some indulgent live versions of songs followed by a couple of the weakest studio efforts. I actually do however like both Doing That Scrapyard Thing and What A Bringdown, as both reminds me of Wrapping Paper and the Coffee Song from the first album Fresh Cream.

The final Cream album is not quite as strong as, Disraeli gears, and, wheels of fire, but still a very good record. Badge, is an absolute classic track, but the album on the whole feels like a collection of whatever material they had left, rather than a thought out LP. Still, classic band.

Ah the days when Clapton was in his prime. A fine record from a seminal group. These guys know how to make an exit.

One of the great exits, and one of the great album sides. Side One goes on way too long, but Side Two is perfect. Great live version of the blues standard, "Sitting On Top of the World," followed by the Clapton/Harrison gem, "Badge," followed by two psychedelic masterpieces, "Doing That Scrapyard Thing" and "What a Bringdown." Not a bringdown at all, when a great band saves their best for last.
