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 4% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.7/100, a mean average of 75.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.0.

This may be one of the best-recorded blues albums. It sounds like these dudes are in the room with you.

To use a somewhat ironic reference, this is the 'Kind of Blue' of the blues! - Incredible stuff! You can almost literally hear a pin drop, it's so intense! - Not to mention the line up; Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon, and last, but not least, Buddy Guy...what more needs to be said?

It has no songs that really standout, but it is a overall nice and passionate album.

A very powerful voice finding a very sweet and deep atmosphere thanks to the beautiful acoustic arangements that contrast with Waters more traditionally electric approach, it sure has a lot of delta in the Robert Johnson vibe but it has more in common to what Rick Rubin would later achieve for Johnny Cash in the American Recordings albums, a trully underrated gem...
