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 3% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 77.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 78.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.6.

Not quite up to the level of the debut, but there's plenty of classics here.

Great album. Not as good as their debut in my opinion but fantastic still. The best cuts are Sweet Home Alabama, The Ballad Of Curtis Loew, and Call Me The Breeze. No bad songs to be found here.

Lynyrd Skynyrd's second album is an excellent follow up to their brilliant debut. Kicking off with the band's most successful single, sweet home Alabama, a rock classic, the record never lets up. Workin'for MCA, is a great cynical look at the music business, don't ask me no questions, is a strong cut, and the cover of J.J. Cale's, call me the breeze, is fantastic. The playing here is superb, all in all, another classic skynyrd LP.

I think this album is even better than Pronounced, which was damn good. One of the best sophomore albums of all time.

Very good album that's just a notch lower than their fantastic debut. Plenty of good music here for fans of the debut.

This is what I call "Good to listen to anytime" music. Not too hard. Not too soft. But catchy all the way.
