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 79.3/100, a mean average of 79.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.0.

One of the best blues albums I've ever heard. Pity that this man never got the accolades he deserved.

Thoroughly enjoyable blues album. It's perfect for a hot sweaty summers night. Full of character and atmosphere. One of the great blues records.

A blues staple. King's influence on the guitar playing of the late 60s is undeniable and it can be heard best from this album.

This may be the album that made the man but it's not his best work.

This album is freakin amazing. It alternates between Albert Kings signature less is more guitar style with upbeat funky blues and very soulful stuff. Albert King is a genius.
