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 mean average rating of 81.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 82.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.0.

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.

Willy and the poor boys, is the weakest of the first five Creedence Clearwater Revival albums. I'm not saying it's bad, but it is the least inspired of those records. Still, it has two of the greatest CCR songs in, feelin' blue, and, effigy. Both brilliant. Fortunate son, is another standout. Not their best, but still good.
