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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 80.5/100, a mean average of 80.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.6.

Incredible debut, the founding father of southern rock albums, rarely if ever equaled. It doesn't get much better than this.
Solid lineup of tracks from beginning to end. Highlights include, 'Black Hearted Woman' which has an almost Hendrix sound to it, and one of the greatest LP climax's with 'Whipping Post'. Perfect balance between blues and southern rock. The boys bare all in a way that later albums would never capture.

Wow... just wow. Amazing southern blues rock/guitar work. Really dig: Don't Want You No More, Trouble No More, Dreams, and Whipping Post.

A stunning debut that essentially invented the Southern Rock genre. Probably the best studio album they ever made. Criminally underrated.

The best studio Allman Brothers Band album in my opinion, remains unfortunately (still) their most underrated effort. A raw blues-rock experience without the country influences that were introduced in later albums.

A pretty decent debut, unnoticed and ignored at the time of its release. This one is the most raw and energetic of all their studio releases, so it's a real treat to hear all these bluesy songs before they became smooth and slick by the time they got to Fillmore East.

Stellar debut by the Allmans. Dreams may be somewhat weak, but the rest is top notch material. Definitely hinting at the three masterpieces to come.
