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 9% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.9/100, a mean average of 76.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 11.4.

Merito del leader del gruppo ma ancor di più degli assolo del chitarrista Mike Bloomfield il fatto di riuscire ad evitare la trappola della prevedibilità sempre in agguato nel blues e a far elevare questi brani in territori che saranno più vicini alla psichedelia che al blues stesso.

An A-side to die for followed by a rather disappointing B-side (not bad, mind you, just a disappointment when following what came before it). The best track is the stellar version of Robert Johnson's Walkin' Blues followed by Work Song which features some of the best blues harmonica ever put on record.
