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)

I did not think I would get into this, but I did. Rating (79.44)
One of my favorite albums of all time, not a weak track to avoid. Carlos is at his creative peak and the percussion is measured and not over indulging. Would love the release of an official live document from that period. It would be all downhill from there. Santana III is all over the place and then Rolie and Schon left and Santana never had a decent vocalist again. I know that Carlos is an icon and he deserves the recognition, but Abraxas remains his master piece.
Superb album in parts sounding like a spiced up Pink Floyd! In my humble opinion this is Progressive Rock with a Latin influence. Vocals remind me of some of the early Traffic output in places. 'Hope You're Feeling Better' is a personal favourite, full of rockin energy.
Black Magic Woman is simply one of my favorite songs from the 70s! What a way to kick of the decade Santana!
Uma viagem na doce e quente guitarra de Carlos Santana. Abra os ouvidos e mergulhe de cabeça.
Very cool album. I have great respect an admiration for the innovators who have pioneered fusion genres but alas! This particular fusion isn't really for me. I'm sure some people love it though.
Upgraded this incredible album to a full 100. Santana is great!
Santana's 2nd album is an eclectic mix of rock , jazz , salsa and blues highlighted by the Fleetwood Mac cover 'Black Magic Woman ' , the cover of 1962's 'Oye Como Va' and second to last track 'Hope You're Feeling Better '
Instrumental warning , there are 4 included on this album

Fun album! Santana is a great guitarist!
Classic album! Many of the songs are insanely underrated. I personally think that he sometimes takes it a little overboard with the guitar and would have appreciated a little more room for the rest of the band. Nevertheless amazing album
