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 79.4/100, a mean average of 79.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.5.

Favorite Tracks:Out Of The Blue, Bitter-Sweet
Their greatest and most consistent set of Roxy Music songs, illustrating their startling depth.
One of my favourite Roxy Music albums, country life is a lot more than that excellent record sleeve. The thrill of it all, is a brilliant opener, and the LP never lets up with superb tracks such as, all I want is you, bitter sweet, and, prairie rose, all being highlights. Another classic Roxy album.
Their best album musically and visually stimulating to boot !!!
Roxy in high gear. A solid clutch of the band's best songs reside in these grooves, including "The Thrill of It All," "Out of the Blue" and "Prairie Rose," capped by Ferry's surreal lounge lizard vocal stylings. And that album art has its own place in the teen fantasy hall of fame. It's a complete package.
Most definitely one of the best album covers of all time!
The best post Eno Roxy album.
Roxy Music's best album, and not just for the album cover (although that's an added bonus). Standout tracks are: Thrill of It All, All I Want Is You, Really Good Time, and Prairie Rose.
Listening to this 38 years on it seems quite incredible how many bands it has influenced over the years
