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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 82.8/100, a mean average of 82.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.6.

I was a 16-year old camp counselor in training, far from home in a primitive forest. I ran a high fever for two days with a horrific bout of tonsillitis. All I could do was lay on a bunk in a cabin with no air conditioning and listen to my records on headphones, sweating and hallucinating. This was one of those records. I cannot be objective about believing it is an all-time great.

Wond'ring Aloud really, REALLY sounds like a Cat Stevens track, early Cat Stevens even. Other than that clunker, this is an undeniably great album, even if we wore it out when we were 15 years old.

Looks like a concept album , smells like a concept album , sounds like a concept album so must be a concept album ? Well, no according to the band

Regardless its an awesome album lead by the wonderful "Locomotive Breath"

A dorky flute playing dude who stands on one leg would front one of the biggest bands in the world by the time this double album came out in 1971 , who'd have thunk it !
