|Avg. album rating
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 82.0/100, a mean average of 81.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.3.

3rd best CCR?. An incredible array of songs with only a couple of filler tracks.
This is quite a mixed bag from CCR where we have some outstanding tracks that carry the album and then quite a few filler cuts that hold it back. These huge tracks are of course Fortunate Son, Down On The Corner and Cotton Fields amongst a few others as well. Musically, these songs are infectious and they force themselves into your brain so you hum or sing them for hours after the record ends. They all have such a great energy as well and they fill you with joy. You then get these dips in between these songs where you go to just average tracks and I find myself sat there waiting for the other songs to come back on. These tracks don't capture the same vibe and feel a bit slow and simple in comparison. My mind always wanders away from the record as well and it struggles to hold my attention. Overall, there is some great stuff to be found on here but you do have to sit through some average songs to find it.
Clássico! Grande momento da década de 60 e da música em geral.
Fortunate Son is the best. Down On The Corner is great, the rest is just good.
Typically great CCR sound, but not the strongest collection of songs.
Best tracks: Down on the Corner, Cotton Fields, Fortunate Son, The Midnight Special.
Worst tracks: Poorboy Shuffle, Don't Look Now, Side O' the Road
Great record from CCR! As per usual, John Fogerty's writing and vocal/guitar talents shine here.
This album features the most iconic vietnam song Fortunate Son what more can i say. This is great, best songs: Fortunate Son, Down On The Corner, The Midnight Special.
Incredibly good album marred by a couple instrumentals and an overlong Effigy. All the other tracks are great.
Un po' schiacciato tra la perfetta concisione del celebre "Green river" ed il capolavoro "Cosmo's factory", "Willy and the poor boys" risulta sempre penalizzato quando si parla dei migliori dischi dei Creedence. Forse gli fa difetto una canzone da far saltare il banco ( una "Proud Mary", per dire ) ma per il resto ha tutto: una canzone capolavoro come "Effigy", una perfetta e riuscitissima cover come "Cotton fields", rock blues, riff e ritmi nella loro miglior, seppur breve, tradizione. Lo scherzo di "Poorboy shuffle" è la ciliegina sulla torta.
A solid album about Vietnam era Louisiana.
