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 82.5/100, a mean average of 81.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.8.

At parts it's rocking, at parts it slows down with beautiful ballads, enjoyable pop music throughout. "The India Song" stands out for me.

Great work reminds me of That 70s Show In the Streets is a hammer track and by Thirteen you feel with Donna at the end of the show.

My dad introduced me to this album at age ten and I haven’t looked back. What a solid collection of classic southern power pop/rock. Take out the unnecessary closing track and you’ve got a near perfect record. I cannot overstate its influence on alternative music. Still sounds fresh today. Great stuff

Definitely works as a throwback album to some popular sounds at the time.

#1 Record is an undeniable slam dunk masterpiece , its production values continues to blow my mind today

For me musically this album is my Big Bang , my Primordial Soup , my Garden Of Eden , this is where the sound track to my life all began

# 1 Record was released in 1972 which directly influenced my all time favourite band R.E.M , followed by my beloved The Replacements around the same time . Then other favourites of mine are beholden to Big Star - Teenage Fanclub , Wilco , Primal Scream , The Cramps and of course Jeff Buckley

This albums influence continues to cast a Beatle-esque shadow some 46 years on

Don't worry about what could have been with Big Star , instead enjoy what IS which is an almost perfect album bar Hummels "The India Song"

Standing On The Shoulders Of Giants
