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 84.7/100, a mean average of 83.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.7.

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

One of the most beautifull and rare gifts of this album is the incredible way the raw emotion, the feeling and Morrison's unique singing mixtures with meticulousness and prolixity. Intense and very peculiar album.

This type of sparse folky production is not my style normally, but Van Morrison's vocals and lyrics are poignant and very beautiful.

Simply a brilliant album, lyrically and musically captivating taking the listener to a music generated emotional high - genuinely transcendent! Listen to this album.

Very good album. Lyrics and production are incredible. Vocals are also really good as well. It's not the type of music I normally listen too, but this is great stuff.
