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 Bayesian average rating of 79.5/100, a mean average of 78.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.9.

Does a good job of showcasing the rock, country and R&B sensibilities of Elvis in less than half an hour.

I heard likely to this album the standout tracks are Blue Suede Shoes and Tutti Frutti. Im happy to have this good stuff of music. It is historically important.

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.
