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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 81.3/100, a mean average of 80.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.6.

Eric Clapton doing what he does best, and doing it very well. One of the best guitarists on the planet. Duane Allman isn't a name to scoff at either, as is any other musician on here.

I recommend listening to this and All Things Must Pass, as they are complimentary of each other and de facto companion pieces. Not all in one go, unless you have 3 hours to spare.

one of the most brilliant, epic, passionate and sincere declarations of love ever. Clapton's best work and one of the best albums of all time. Definitely deserves to be ranked higher and i have a feeling with time it will be.

A truly raw album. Seems like a Phil Spector meets Jazz Rock fantasy to me. Absolutely love it!

EC is a competent guitarist, but this album only really comes to life when Duane Allman is featured. Layla wouldn't have become transcendent without him.

A great classic from a band of virtuosic musicians. Love the blues I've found in this album. A few songs are not as great as the others but this is still very good.

Best Songs: Bell Bottom Blues, Layla, Little Wing

Worst Songs: Keep On Growing, I'm Yours, Thorn tree in the Garden

Clapton's finest moment. And the finest homage to unrequited love that's out there.

I like blues, and I like Eric, but this is rather inconsistent, It does not strike me in any away apart from the song "Bell Bottom Blues"
