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 Bayesian average rating of 81.4/100, a mean average of 80.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.2.

Second best CCR album after Cosmo's Factory, there are a lot of their greatest tracks on this one and it's fun to listen to.

Contains many favorite CCR tracks
Bangers: Lodi, Green River, Bad Moon Rising, Tombstone Shadow.
Fogerty's voice on Tombstone is so raw and suits the song perfectly,
Drop Nighttime is the right time, Cross Tie Walker and Sinister and take Proud Mary, Born on The Bayou and Bootleg from Bayou to this album and there is a helluva great album, !!

CCR was always the best at classic roots rock, and Green River is one of their best, most cohesive efforts in that genre. They'd reach their peak on Cosmo's Factory, but this album still has plenty of great tracks, like the title track, Commotion, Bad Moon Rising, Lodi and Wrote a Song for Everyone. I certainly recommend this.

Such a good record. Roots rock is a bit of a "safe" genre but doesn't make the music any less good.

Best tracks: Green River, Bad Moon Rising, Lodi

Not one of CCR's best releases, but still a great one at that.

Top of the tree for CCR followed closely by Bayou County. Superb musicianship and vocals throughout. 'Bad Moon Rising' will be familiar to many as a backing to film/TV. Can't remember what it backed and don't really care. Hailing from the El Ceritto village area at the back of San Fransico Bay they offered a slight alternative to the likes of Jefferson Airplane and The Grateful Dead. Perhaps less LSD to inspire their music but the results are still worthy.
