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 87.0/100, a mean average of 86.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 87.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.1.

Such an overrated album. The "poetry" of Jim Morrison: "ride the snake to the lake" and rhyming "fire" with "fire" . Just my opinion.

It is a classic for a reason. I have to say, though, that consistency was an issue, just like in "L.A. Woman". Overall, 75/100.

Always weird and always interesting. That does not mean always good, but on the whole I'd call it a very enjoyable album. Fav tracks are Soul Kitchen and the 3 super obvious ones.

'Break on Through', 'Twentieth Century Fox', 'Light My Fire', 'Back Door Man' and 'Take It As It Comes' are my favorites here. Admittedly, I expected a bit more from a record that is so highly touted by critics and listeners alike. It's a fantastic album, but not quite 'top ten of the sixtees' fantastic.
