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 9% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.8/100, a mean average of 76.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.7.

Really underrated album. One of the best psychedelic rock albums. It reminds me a lot of Pink Floyd

Psychedelic rock at its best. A great mix of vocal and instrumental tracks. Favourite tracks are: Synesthesia, Always Never, Not Beautiful Anymore. This release (recorded with real drums) also comes with the bonus ep Stairways Infinities - containing the tracks that didn't make it - All winners in my view.
