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 82.7/100, a mean average of 81.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.7.

First listen in years and always my least favourite of the 4, it sounds even more of a drop in quality from the last album than I remember. As has been said, first 3 tracks and the last are great but the rest is nowhere near velvet greatness of the past. It's still a decent album, but no classic like the rest. I prefer the 80s lost recordings release to this.

This album is so underrated. People often place it at the bottom of the VU's discography but Imo it's as good as TVU&N.

Weakest of the VU albums, but still really good.

Favorites: Sweet Jane, Rock and Roll, Head Held High, Lonesome Cowboy Bill, I Found a Reason, Oh! Sweet Nuthin'.
