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 has a Bayesian average rating of 73.6/100, a mean average of 73.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 20.0.

Not only best album of the year, but one of the best albums of the decade and of latin american music. Listening to this, the amazing music and emotional lyrics from poems by Pablo Neruda is breathtaking. You actually feel on top o Machu Picchu. Trascendental experience and really worth checking.

Desconozco el por que este album tiene una calificación de tan solo 71 sobre 100. Supongo que se debe al desconocimiento de quienes comenta.
Este es un gran gran album creado en 1981 en Sudamérica, además tiene el extra de que en algunas canciones musicalizan los poemas de Pablo Neruda (Premio NOBEL Literatura 1971), del mismo título, aparecido en su libro Canto General, de 1950. Es un disco con una Psicodelia Sudamericana inconfundible, melodías para viajar a bellos mundos, por favor si usted disfruta de la Psicodelia mas Sudamericana por favor sientese a escuchar este disco es realmente una belleza!! Está bien construido, las canciones tienen letras y melodías hermosas!!

Además existe la versión en DVD grabada en el mismo Machu Picchu, presentada por Mario Vargas Llosa, imagínese todo el trabajo de subir los instrumentos incluido un piano de cola hasta Machu Picchu... Increíble!

Dele un regalo a su Alma y escuche este disco, no se arrepentira!!
