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 4% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 78.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 77.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.3.

Like the greatest art takes you to a time and place where you almost feel you're breathing the same air.

Not as perfectly mastered as Calenture, but still a masterpiece.

One of the greatest ever Aussie albums. Wide Open Road is the highlight. If you ever get the chance to travel round Oz make sure you have this playing on your stereo!

It's an Australian golden gem full of memories and mystery. It says so much about Australia particularly Western Australia were David McComb grew up . its very much in the same class as a Tim Winton novel It's a masterpiece

Deep into my Antipodean phase, this became one of my favourite albums.
