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 78.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 80.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.1.

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

Heavily underrated, one of my favorites of Springsteen, the only thing is that Willy Billy Circus Story is pretty bad.

my least listened to Bruce record
But still contains some Amazing songs - incident, rosalita, serenade - which have all become firm favourites due to their live outings over the years.
Signs of greatness to follow ....

A legend to be showing his first glimpses of greatness. This album includes some of his best work, although a bit incoherent in total. Best tracks: Sandy, Incident on 57th street, Rosalita, New York City serenade.

Soulier & jazzier, younger, and better than later in his career

A truly great album with a huge number of wonderful songs. One of the strongest set of songs in the Boss' discography, even though the best was yet to come...

I always love seeing that great picture of Orlando Bloom every time I put this album on.
