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 all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.7/100, a mean average of 77.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 11.4.

Fantastic song selection, great organ, thick soulful voice, and some great guitar playing from Jimmy Page. Great album

Joe Cocker bursts into the late 60s with a soulful collection, channeling Ray Charles and baring his Soul with a Capital "S". In listening to this album for the first time there were times when I thought I had mistakenly put on a Brother Ray disc. "Bye Bye Blackbird" sounds like Charles could have cut it himself. The album is also sprinkled with guest appearances (most notably Jimmy Page soloing on the aforementioned "Bye Bye Blackbird', and Stevie Winwood contributing to "Do I still Figure In Your Life?" and "I Shall Be Released".) English guitar hero, Albert Lee, duets with Page on 3 tunes. But what keeps it all together is the man himself, Joe Cocker!

Edit to add, that the album I reviewed is the 1999 re-release with two additional tracks - the two B-sides "The New Age Of Lily" and "Something's Coming On" - both featuring Jimmy Page and Albert Lee.
