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 24% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 74.6/100, a mean average of 73.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.5.

The King really made a comeback with this album. I've always loved "Girl of My Best Friend", and have always thought it was underrated!

The first album Elvis Presley recorded after leaving the army. It's arguably his best, most consistent, and most enjoyable album. Great songs here; dirty, dirty feeling, the lovely, girl of my best friend, and the blues, reconsider baby, Elvis wouldn't record anything like that for a while after this. Unfortunately, it was all downhill from here until the resurrection in 1968. One of the few essential Elvis Presley albums.

I got this LP in hi-fi vinyl at 45 rpm as a doublealbum from a friend at Christmas a couple of years ago!
The quality of the recording knocked me out!! Especially the king's version of Lowell Fulson's "Reconsider baby" was a revelation.. What a fantastic track...I suddenly found myself as a fan of Elvis first recording in the sixties!

this is Elvis Presley at his best. He has the nashville cats, the guys who backed everybody in country music.Elvis handles the blues amazingly. The feeling is ,well all feeling. This album shoud be no 1 on this site,. You gotta listen.
