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 77.9/100, a mean average of 76.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.2.

It may be the most obvious attempt Bruce Springsteen ever made to sell records, but Born in the USA is still a very relevant record lyrically despite its hooky music and catchy choruses. Its a very fun album from start to finish and packed full of enjoyable songs. This record is far more of a downer than people realize. Many of the songs originate from the Nebraska era sessions, so the subject matter between the two albums is often comparable. This is one of the best albums of all time to listen to while driving.
Iconic, right from the opening note. I’m hard pressed to think of an album that does a better job of telling a grim tale of loss, failure, and emptiness all while smiling from ear to ear. The music says we’re in the good old days, the lyrics say they’re long since gone.
Posiblemente el disco más comercial de Springsteen, con clásicos como Glory Days, No Surrender y el que da título al álbum, entre otros.
My sister had this album at the time so I have known it for years - only got it myself in last couple of years through checking out this site. I enjoyed it again without it necessarily blowing me away. That said I am developing a respect for Springsteen as I listen to more of his albums
the album cover says it all
Springsteen doesn't really switch up his formula a lot on Born in the USA but timing must have been perfect to make this the big hit that it was. I'm usually partial to the dated production like this. I the quality of the songs shine through the keyboards and synths and the production details help emphasize the simple melodies and song structures here. Never been a big fan of the title track through, probably because it's a handful of the Springsteen tracks on constant radio airplay.

Levemente cafona, mas puro ouro!
A mixed bag to say the least. The title track and I'm On Fire are great, but songs like I'm Goin' Down are the reason I've never loved Springsteen.
Great album, bit overplayed for obvious reason, but the quality can't be denied. The overarching theme of the downthrotten American dream is also great.
