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 84.6/100, a mean average of 83.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.8.

So good. The way it was recorded and all. Love it. But shys away from my personal top 100. Kind of has a similar flow throughout the album that can get a bit.... boring at times. That being said, its definitely a masterpiece.

I 'm more into Moondance, but Madame George is simply otherworldly.

It's a healthy dose of peak Van, but I don't have the same reverence for this particular album that many others do.

Really nice folk-blues album if you're into that thing. Not as "rock" as Moondance but still holds up nicely. The title track, Sweet Thing and The Way Young Lovers Do in particular are excellent.

He's such a sweet voice, it takes you in the moment you hear ''if a ventured in the slipstream...'' to the end. Great album
