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 81.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.9.

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.

This band has an amazing sound, and it is wonderfully presented in this mixture of country, rock, and blues.

CCR's best instrumentation album. Always a group of outstanding musicians, they stepped it up a notch with this one.

I've always considered CCR to be a singles band , but Green River proves that incorrect , it truly is a classic album

There's some great stuff here ... the timeless "Bad Moon Rising" and the excellent "Commotion" into "Tombstone Shadow" are clear album shining lights

As honest as the day is long

CCR's only perfect album from start to finish. No bad song can be found here.The title track is the best after Bad Moon Rising.

"Green river" dura solamente 29 minuti... Eppure "Green river" è perfetto proprio ( e anche ) perché dura poco: non c'è una sola nota di troppo, niente di superfluo, nessuna inutile ripetizione per allungare il brodo. Essenzialità pura. Economia.

One of, if not the best Creedence Clearwater Revival. Green river, is a fantastic record of good old honest rock'n'roll. It features possibly CCR best set of songs, featuring, amongst others, sinister purpose, Lodi, and the timeless, bad moon rising. This is rock'n'roll with heart and soul.
