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 78.8/100, a mean average of 77.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.5.

Not quite as good as Buddy Holly's self titled (I find the backing vocals on this album to be a bit cheesy), but still a really solid record. A blast from the past.

Solid album that shows why Buddy Holly is a 50's icon. He was already a master at phrasing his vocals when this was recorded in his early twenties. The recording wasn't the best of the era (the bass can be a little flubby), but it's still decent.

Best tracks: Maybe Baby, That'll Be the Day, Not Fade Away, Oh Boy.

The bonus tracks added on the re-issue are just average and slightly drag down the rating from the original release.

Great stuff if you can just for a second remember that not long before this album, people were falling asleep at the wheel to crooners like Frank Sinatra and generally kicking dirt around on old Civil War battlefields to that Dixie song and whatnot. This is the music of the future and it always will be.

Holly only started to play rock 'n' roll after he saw Elvis perform in Lubbock, Texas. And although he tried sometimes (as on Ready Teddy), he never sounded wild or angry. Real nice rock 'n' roll, with the empathis on roll.

As already mentioned, one can easily hear the influence Buddy had on so many artists. This is a classic.
