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 82.4/100, a mean average of 81.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.7.

This album feels very sentimental and incredibly composed. All songs create the same atmosphere and that allows us to just glide through the music so easily. The instrumentation is brilliant, the guitar and piano work being personal standouts for me. You can see all the inspirations the artist has in the music as well which creates an incredible mixture of ideas that all come to fruition by the closing track. Overall, a modern country masterpiece that is so easy to put on time and time again.
I don't think it can get any better thabn this. Probably my favorite album of all times.
This has a country/americana/folk background, but quite different from most albums of this kind nonetheless. It clearly has a modern vibe, at points it moved closer to alternative and to rock- which was obvious both in the vocals and in the instrumentation-, so it was rather easy on my ears. Also, this is isn't just for background music, it demands your attention with its energy. The female vocas in Peoria Lunch Box Blues were another nice touch, though my favorite song of the album is easily I've Been Riding With The Ghost. Still, consistency was great, not a single weak track.
Well, this is just damn-near flawless. Fantastic country album that delivers crushing instrumentals but balances that with memorable riffs and melodies.
Fuck all ya'll. This is a masterpiece.
My favorite Cap n' Jazz & Black Crowes album
While not quite his After the Gold Rush or Born in the USA, it is Molina's most accessible and extroverted album, and quite an excellent one to boot.
Definitely some Neil Young-isms here. Nothing wrong with that though, is there? It's also just plain decent music.
How the hell can someone rate this 25/100? C'mon.
This understatedly groovin album reminds me of neil young, wilco and maybe a little pavement all in one. (Mostly neil young.) Well, maybe not "old black hen" which has an old-school, deep country vibe. And not the female vox on "peoria lunch box blues". But the whole album has this road-weary, broken-down country feel.

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
