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 79.9/100, a mean average of 78.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.1.

Springsteen gets in the groove with his ensemble on his second record. It's good enough to back up any Steely Dan record. He's really sensual and soulful on this one.

Highly recommended.

This is a hugely underrated and overlooked album in Springsteen's catalogue. The album has a feel good vibe the whole way through and it is difficult not to love what your hearing. Also, when you realise how early in his career this album was made it is astounding to see how much musical maturity and just overall quality is on display. Definitely a record worth hearing.

Easily my favorite Springsteen. Very Americana, without getting too boring, and very funky. I'm not a fan of Springsteen mostly because I find a lot of his catalogue to be very overproduced, but this album is very fun and interesting.

Wow, as a second album this is absolutely amazing! The Dylan undertones are great, but he definitely is distinct enough to not make it too much.

You can hear the Astral Weeks influence, especially on the last track, but a pretty weak side A keeps this out of Bruce's upper echelon.

Finally someone else realizes just how perfect and epic every song on this album is. Not pop songs or folk songs. Just stories. Ballads. Very New York too. Nice.

What an absolute pleasure it was to finally hear this classic album , going in with high expectations 'The Wild , The Innocent & The E Street Shuffle ' delivered , this really is a stunning album and a must for any true music phile

Incredible to imagine this was album number 2 and Bruce was only 24 yo when this album was recorded , its an album mature beyond its years

No weak track with every note in its perfect place the AllMusic Review for this album states:

"In actual fact The Wild , The Innocent & The E Street Shuffle may well be the greatest record in the history of Rock and Roll "

It really is hard to argue with that

Defining
