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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 83.3/100, a mean average of 82.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.0.

Even if I don't connect to it perfectly, it's a near-flawless record.

There are 3 truly outstanding songs on this record and then everything else feels like it is on the edge of being filler content. This leads to an inconsistent release that balances out at quite a good listen especially with Springsteen's experimentation on here. He isn't shy to express himself through the use of a diverse array of instrumentation that is well performed across the whole release. This makes even the weaker songs have something to enjoy about them despite them lacking the charm and infectiousness of the three colossal tracks that are Thunder Road, Jungleland and Born To Run. Overall, this record is over rated due to its huge singles which are phenomenal but the record as a whole is quite up and down quality wise.

The first time I heard the song 'Born To Run' is indelibly stamped into my music appreciation DNA. I was sitting in a car with the radio on, waiting for a friend ~ it was September 1975 and I was 19 ~ 'Born To Run' came on - I was mesmerised from the moment it began and by the end of the song I was changed in ways that I cannot explain. For me, this album (all 8 tracks) has stood the test of time and remains as one of my top 10 albums if all time, despite my 'love' of Springsteen fading post Born In The USA.

Solid album. Born To Run is a great song. I really like the piano in Meeting Across The River too. But the longer anthems just don't land for me (Jungleland and Thunder Road). A lot of the album sounds very similar although admittedly it is a nice sound - but does get quite tiresome. Backstreets has a lovely piano hook but doesn't really go anywhere as a song. Which sums up the whole album for me.

It's good, but I can't say it's great.

Solid Springsteen. Feel I should like it more but I don't fully emotionally connect with his albums although I enjoy them and see their appeal.

This is an album with very great and grandiose production and emotional vocal performace from Bruce with genius lyrics. Best tracks are surely Thunder Road and Born To Run, but there are other highlights as well: Jungleland, Backstreets, Night. Overall very enjoyable and beautiful album.

Springsteen at his best! The entire album is an anthem for young men in New Jersey.

Obra maestra.
Canciones cantadas y tocadas con mucho sentimiento, cosa que es muy difícil de transmitir y que muy pocos álbumes consiguen.
Es un disco perfecto de la primera a la √ļltima canci√≥n y donde dif√≠cilmente puedes elegir una mejor canci√≥n. Thunder Road, Born to Run, Jungleland, Backstreet, Tenth avenue freeze out,... Cl√°sico tras cl√°sico.
Un inicio de disco perfecto al igual que el cierre.
Y como siempre digo, aquella versi√≥n ac√ļstica de thunder Road una noche de junio en Gij√≥n, me acompa√Īara cada d√≠a hasta que me muera. Nadie como el boss para transmitir sobre un escenario.
