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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.6/100, a mean average of 78.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.1.

This album benefits from stronger writing than the first one, and the musical talent is unbelievable. It's terrific all the way through. Also, this happens to be a great album to play on a road trip if you ever get the chance.

This would've been a great record if it wasn't for the totally forgettable last two tracks. "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" is an incredible highlight here, along with the bluesy "Don't Keep me Wonderin'" and the radio friendly "Midnight Rider."

The best studio album they made with Duane. It shows the versatility of the two lead guitar attack and Greg's soulful singing. Midnight Rider is one of the best ever songs.

A great and underrated piece of work. Would rate higher if it weren't the length of an EP at barely 30 minutes. Dicky Betts gets his wings as a songwriter here, and the band shows nice growth from their debut effort.
