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 84.0/100, a mean average of 83.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.9.

I like the general comments about Paul Simon below by Bloaf38 on 11/30/2020. And I agree with jwalsh97 on this particular album. The title track is mesmerising - so delicate and wonderful

A beautiful and near flawless album of stunning writing and harmonies. The pair had many moments showing unbelievable quality however this album stands as their crowning achievement before going their separate ways.

Near perfect folk rock album, one of the best in this genre. Some of the most beautiful tracks I heard are on here. Title Track, The Boxer and El Condor Pasa are my favorites.

It's basically a trailblazer and a blueprint for commercially successful folk pop.

Essential.

Simon & Garfunkel's magnum opus. It's a fantastic record from start to finish, and it features some of my all-time favorite songs, both fun (Keep the Customer Satisfied, Baby Driver) and poetic (title track, The Boxer). Essential listening for anybody.

C'est folk, c'est efficace mais ça manque peut être un peu d'originalité
