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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 79.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 79.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.6.

I’ve listened to the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Carl Perkins, little Richard, Chuck Berry, and at 21 years old I’ve still never heard something with such energy and charisma. I’d say Elvis’ vocal performance here rivals John Lennon on the Please Please Me album. I was blown away when I heard this the other day, I don’t know why I listened to it any sooner. I wish there were more Elvis albums like this. Absolutely revolutionary.

While Elvis's charisma adds a lot to the album, it can't hide its nature as series of covers sown together.

A spetacular debut album, from one of the icons that started the Rock N' Roll mania, although I don't recognize It as much for Elvis not being a composer.

A hotchpotch of newly recorded RCA tracks and some songs cut with Sam Phillips at Sun. It's full of fantastic vocal performances, these are the one's that make Elvis Presley one of the greatest and probably most important vocalists ever. Some excellent songs in, trying to get to you, and, blue suede shoes, but in truth, as an album it is incredibly uneven and inconsistent. Still, no one can argue with the importance of this significant collection of songs.

This is not his best album but it is definitely his most important. It introduced a whole new sound to kids that had never heard anything like it before. The main stream starting point to all the permeations of Rock to come.

This is the first rock 'n' roll album ever! They could've made it more rock 'n' roll though. That said, it's still brilliant listening.
