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 all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 80.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 81.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.0.

Even though many of the performers seem to be strung out, it's still a solid performance. The songs are undeniably great.

A perfect album, save for Joni Mitchell hooting her damned way through Neil Young's "Hopeless."

The movie is better than the album, but these live tracks are better versions than the studio albums.

The film is better than CD but hearing THE BAND /THE NIGHT THEY BOUGHT OLD DIXIE DOWN is just magnificent

A celebration of the 60s... Some say Altamont was the end - I'd say this is. The Band and all their friends played one last show before calling it quits. Excellent playing throughout, but the highlight is the sense of intimacy and camaraderie between the artists. Beautiful.

Director Martin Scorsese said: "It´s too moving to watch/hear this feature film" Yes, he is right. Great Richard Manuel.
