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 has a Bayesian average rating of 73.1/100, a mean average of 71.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 20.2.

A solid album that is a very relaxing release and is definitely amongst John Mayer's best work. The guitar work is amazing throughout and it really carries the album on the instrumentation side. The solos we get are fantastic and they add a much needed edge to the record which makes it stand out. The other instrumentation is decent but nothing spectacular but it does a good job of backing up the lead guitar and vocal. His voice and the way he performs is brilliant and you can see the emotion and passion he puts into each track. This makes it easier for us to be able to relate to the music. However, the album can feel slow and it does drift off course a few times. A few songs don't really fit the style they were going for either and stand out as an outlier such as Bold As Love which is a great song but doesn't really suit this environment. Furthermore, the instrumentation is a bit simplistic and they could do with a bit more diversity amongst the tracks as it does get a bit stale. Overall, a fun, enjoyable and relaxing album that creates a brilliantly serene atmosphere.
A flavour of Clapton/ Hendrix greatness updated for the twenty first century.
I know it's not cool to like John Mayer, but I've always liked his sound and it's applied here to a really listenable collection of songs.
Without question the best John Mayer album i've heard yet. Not a single weak track.
Best song(s): "Waiting on the World..." "I Don't Trust Myself" "Gravity" "Vultures" "Slow Dancing in a Burning Room" "Bold as Love" and I guess "Say" was a single that only part of a reissue in 2008 but I still include it
buh BOW WOW CHK DUH NUH NUH NUH NUH BURNING ROOM
I can’t believe how underrated this album is! So many good songs on here. Easily Mayer’s most consistent work front to back. His guitar work has never been more fierce, bluesy, exciting, and raw. His lyrics have never been more mature, honest, clever, and relevant. The production and vocals are slick and shiny without being too cutesy or corny. This is a great example of modern pop music done right. One of the best mainstream rock records from the 2000s, and probably my favorite album released in 2006 alongside St. Elsewhere by Gnarls Barkley and Stadium Arcadium by RHCP
I don't like John Mayer's voice, but this album is quite nice. 7/10.
Great guitar work, but not very cohesive. Some good individual songs though.
John Mayer's masterpiece!
He puts aside obsession with the ladies and takes on bigger topics such as society, mature emotional breakups, mortality, and personal expectation.
Everything you think of John Mayer is true EXCEPT for here. This is an absolutely fantastic album from start to finish and nothing else he has done comes remotely close.
Creator here rather than imitator on all other albums. Imagery of slow dancing in a burning room to describe the slow decay and falling out of love.
Stop This Train is gut wrenching focused on the process of aging himself and of his folks
The bluesy guitar and undertones stay consistent throughout. And then shows his guitar chops on a Hendrix cover.
Try to block out your opinion of Mayer and take this for what it is, pure excellence and one of the best albums of the decade.
His only albums that's worth talking about, I think.
But then, it is GREAT!!!!

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 :(
