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 25% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 74.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 74.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.6.

One off his best albums. Serene and comtemplative.

I quite agree, this one often gets overlooked. I discovered it at the same time as ASTRAL WEEKS, and although that is a masterpiece, this one is a fine continuation of his "Mystic Van" persona.

Beautiful! And certainly underrated when it was released. More Mystic Van than Soulful Van, but that's just fine.

Another great one from van but the strong songwriting is not really shown here. The feeling and musicianship is awese though.

I can't believe there are only 2 people with this on their list. Terribly underrated!
