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 10% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.6/100, a mean average of 74.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.0.

Abbandonati i panni ormai stretti del cantore della notte ed indeciso su cosa diventare da grande, Tom Waits irrobustisce il suono con massicce chitarre elettriche blues ( suonate da lui… ) nel mentre non dimentica le ballate che hanno così tanto contribuito a renderlo il musicista che è. Il risultato è una lista di nove canzoni una più bella dell'altra, senza cedimenti.

Heartattack and vine, is half, a dirty rock album, and half, beautiful piano ballads. Waits growls and hollers on the opening title track, a great bluesy cut. Waits also goes for that gritty rock sound on the excellent, downtown, the percussion heavy, til' the money runs out, and the penultimate track, Mr. Siegel. This record also includes, arguably Waits' most famous song, Jersey girl, an absolutely fantastic track, and a song which Bruce Springsteen faithfully covered on his, live 1975-1985 box set, on which he also added a verse of his own. Off the ballads, saving all my love for you, is good, but, on the nickel, and, Ruby's arms, are stunning, two more genuine Waits classics. The only dud on the album is the pointless live instrumental, in shades. It's surprising that the track is on the album at all, but the fact that it's the second track is, well, just inexplicable. All in all, it's another essential Tom Waits record.

Less piano and another slight step toward the new sound that brought his two most heralded albums. Seventh straight high quality album and his best since the debut.
