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 mean average rating of 83.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 84.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.0.

I hear Bride Over Troubled Water and i feel i can make anything better. The Boxer is a classic and El Condor Pas is my favorite humming song. I like the album and im happy that i have it a must have in my opinion .

A beautiful album. A great finale to a fantastic folk duo. Not sure why they decided to include that live cover of Bye Bye Love though... other than that, it's brilliant!

This album is undoubtedly the highest ranking album of 1970 if not the 1970’s.
This website is very interesting but open to many inaccuracies this quite clearly one of them.

The best Simon and Garfunkel album, and one absolutely amazing one at that! The Boxer in particular gives me chills. I never expected to fall in love with this album the way I have!

What a way to end a partnership - with the best album of a storied career, as well as one of the greatest of all time. Yes, "Bridge" has been played to death, but that's probably because it still resonates even after half a century.

"The Boxer", plus some of their other most popular songs, gradually attracted me to Simon & Garfunkel. I never liked "Bridge Over Troubled Water" though and I was disappointed when I found out it was by them, as it doesn't sound much like their usual stuff. And yet it's a pretty cool song and album title. As for the remaining, shorter songs, most of them I don't think much of, "Cecilia" and "Bye Bye Love" seem a bit regressive, even if they did feel indebted to The Everly Brothers. I like "El Condor Pasa"(I'm partial to traditonal Andean music now) and "The Only Living Boy in New York", but the remaining songs, I can barely remember.
