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 4% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.0/100, a mean average of 76.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.0.

This was my first Tom Waits album. Probably the most straightforward he ever was, but I think it's excellent and his most underrated album. San Diego Serenade might be my favorite Tom Waits song if it isn't Alice

Absolutely love it, there is admittedly nothing as original and unique as one would expect from Tom Waits, but what you get is one of the most evocative albums. If you read the other comments, everyone seem to have a place or emotion that this album makes them think of, and that shows the quality of this album.

Forse il mio disco preferito del Tom Waits ballader degli anni settanta, ancor più del comunque maggiormente compiuto "Blue valentine".

These songs stay with you. Later in his career Waits would tell stories about dashed dreamers, but here you feel that he's really one of them. A very moving experience.
