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 5% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.4/100, a mean average of 76.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.6.

Soft, cozy, warm music
A pesar de que Graceland es el álbum mejor considerado de Paul Simon, hay otros discos suyos, como este, que me parecen incluso mejores. Toques jazzisticos y de gospel para unas composiciones inspiradísimas.
Well done Paul!
Best Tracks: Still Crazy After All These Years, Some Folks' Lives Roll Easy
Still crazy after all these years, like it's predecessor, there goes rhymin' Simon, has a handful of total classics, and bit of filler. Off course, the greatest track here is the brilliant, 50 ways to leave your lover, in the top five Paul Simon songs ever. Gone at last, is a great rock/gospel track, and the title track is almost a signature tune. Elsewhere, the Garfunkel duet, my little town, is good, a taster of maybe what direction S&G could have gone in had they stayed together, and, some folks lives roll easy, is typical Simon. The rest though is filler. Night game, is a nothing song really, you're kind, is dull, and, have a good time, is okay, but Simon never seems to be able to make a consistently strong record(at least until, Graceland), and it's extremely frustrating. Having said that, the great tracks are as good as anything Simon has or will do, it's just there's always two or three songs that let's the albums down.
It starts off much stronger than it finishes, but the first side of this record contains some of his best songs.
IMO, some of his best work ever.
This is his best 70s work. Better than Rhymin Simon, better than his debut. His storytelling is strong, his music swells, and his timing is better than the laboured low points of his other albums. This is the 2nd album to try of his.
i love paul's storytelling ability. A lot of the tales he sings going back to his time in simon & garfunkel sound like they're happening down the block or on his way cross-town to the park. i guess this is his break-up album, but it doesn't sound like it. His higher-pitched vocals carry a breezy air that's light and sunny. You know the hits -- "still crazy after all of these years" and "50 ways to leave your lover" -- does this guy sound down in the dumps to you? "50 ways" sounds fun and detached at the chorus and not bitter at all. The beginning instrumental part of "gone at last" sounds like incidental music a studio would play to a live audience while cutting to commercial, and the whole energy has that offbeat-southern humor energy of the movie "o brother, where art thou?" His pop craft is subtle and precious yet has a gritty wisdom, like character Tom Sawyer entering his late 30s.
