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 9% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 75.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 76.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.9.

A fun records by a group made up of legends in a time where music wasn't at it's best.

It's what you'd expect from a group of class musicians (and Jeff Lynne) coming together to make music. Good songs, quite fun, nothing special. Bet they enjoyed making it.

This album captures the best of true legends in rock music history. The album is solid from the opening Handle With Care to the positive vibe of End of the Line. My fav tracks are Last Night and Tweeter and the Monkey man which I was fortunate enough to see Tom Petty do a great epic version of it. A must album!

Spritely enthusiasm from these 5 man superstars. Nearly fulfills the hype that surrounds this release. The harmonies are what distinguish this from other rock albums of the 80s-90s. I feel Petty is somewhat the weak link here.

Tutti e cinque i componenti dei Traveling Wilburys avevano, sulla carta, tutto da guadagnare da un'esperienza simile: chi doveva rilanciare la propria carriera ( Orbison ), chi le doveva dare una mano di vernice fresca ( Dylan e Harrison ), chi aveva bisogno della definitiva patente di classico ( Petty ) e chi doveva dimostrare di valere più di quanto un ambiguo passato negli E.L.O. facesse ricordare ( Lynne ). Missione compiuta per tutti, anche se Orbison sarebbe morto l'anno successivo. Belle canzoni ( "Handle with care" su tutte, da ascoltare migliaia di volte senza stancarsi… ), produzione parca ma non scarna, la voglia di divertirsi prima di tutto.

A bunch of guys with a full career behind their backs having a good time. And they sure knew how to capture that lighthearted feel in the mix.

Overall good and enjoyable. An album for a sunny sunday morning.
