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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 84.6/100, a mean average of 83.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.1.

Un rock / blues d'une efficacité redoutable. Mon groupe préféré dans ce style.

John Fogerty is one of the most prolific songwriters of USA. CCR released five classics in a roll in just two years in the end of the 60´s, an accomplishment never made by any band before and after.

Highlights: I Heard Through The Grapevine (maybe the best cover ever), Who´ll Stop The Rain, Up Around The Bend and Long As I can See The Light.

The weak one: Ooby Dooby, just a silly song, IMO.

I find it hard to deem a band very genuine that can switch its face so fast from your average folk band from across the street to arena rock all the way without changing their line-up. But I find it equally difficult to not enjoy this. It's familiar, but good.

After a string of great albums, and even greater singles, CCR hit it out of the park with this one. I especially love their cover of "I Heard It Through the Grapevine".

The best album from one of the most iconic bands of the late sixties/early seventies. So many of their most well known songs are here! Could've done without "Ooby Dooby" though.

Cosmos' Factory includes "Up Around the Bend", "Travelin' Band", "Run Through the Jungle", "Ramble Tamble" and "Lookin' Out My Back Door". The quality throughout is consistent (except on "Ooby Dooby")
