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)

Best tracks: My Home Is In the Delta, Country Boy, Feels Like Going Home
Worst tracks: My Captain, Good Morning Little School Girl, Cold Weather Blues, Big Leg Woman
This may be one of the best-recorded blues albums. It sounds like these dudes are in the room with you.
The only song i really enjoyed on this album was "Good Morning Little Schoolgirl".
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?
Probably my least favorite Muddy Waters album.
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...
