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 has a Bayesian average rating of 73.1/100, a mean average of 72.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.6.

I never bought this album yet I can sing nearly every song by heart. This was probably THE most ubiquitous album on college campuses in the mid 90s. Hard to underestimate just how much it permeated the scene.

Your deejay days are long past. You're pointed toward the rear ... CAreer and child REARing. Then this album shows up and bites you on the ass to say, "Wake Up." Get out from under the table, because music is still growing and thriving with or without you.

It's funny. Ants Marching is a bit too country white people fiddle happy for me. Not my fav. Liked Satellite and What Would you Say a bit more.

One of the best college radio jam band albums. DMB in the will polish their sound and the production of their music in the future. This is still great stuff.

This had huge singles in What Would You Say and Satellite

Ants Marching is probably their best and most well known song.

Rhyme and Reason is the darkest song here and shows the darker side of Dave that haunts him throughout his life when the party stops and he is alone with his depressive and drunk thoughts

Typical Situation and Dancing Nancies are underrated

Jimi Thing is your typical lets get high song

Lover Lay Down and 34 are throways.

I docked 5 points for these 2 songs and another 5 points for this being essentially only a college radio album.

Warehouse has great verses but the island sounding chorus is a bit of a let down. Good song though.

Busted Stuff is their best album. People don't know about it, many gave up after Everyday.

This ranks in their 2nd tier of albums pretty much tied with its kissing cousin Crash and the excellent Groo Crux King to come later

Brilliant, everyone liked this album when I had 14. So much that they stole it one time my friends came to my house. I was dissapointed when I knew I couldn't hear it with Spotify (At least, in the country where I live).

Decent, but not quite at the level of the next two.

This is DMB's best, and spawned a lot of imitators in the 90s and 2000s. To really get this band though you need to see them live.

DMB's first studio album, and it's a very good one. A ton of classic songs, including some of the best of the 90s.
