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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 79.8/100, a mean average of 78.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.9.

Opeth went to a totally different direction with this album. It set the turning point and the direction to all the following albums after Damnation. I like this album very much, it is more laid back then the previous releases and has some beautiful melodies. It shows the spectrum the band has and also Mikael's voice, that can so much more than just screaming. On this album he never growls or screams. So, every song is relaxing and brings beautiful soundscapes. Especially Windowpane is one of the greatest songs of the band.

My favourite Opeth album and you can hear the influence of Steve Wilson throughout the album. Haunting.

Extraordinário. Melodias brilhantes que descrevem a tristeza e a melancolia. Contraponto com o outros álbuns da banda.

Such a great album, a counterpart to Deliverance what I believe may be their heaviest release. They really should've been a double album. Opeth is as beautiful as they are hard-hitting, and they certainly show that here.

It's good, not great. "Windowpane" is phenomenal and could measure up against anything on Blackwater Park, but the rest of the album fails to live up to it. Still pretty dang good, though.

It is true, I only listened to this because Steven Wilson produced, played the keyboard and co-wrote one track. But this is not a Steven Wilson album. It is clearly Mikael Åkerfeldt driven here. Such beautifully haunting tracks. Favourites are: the first 3 tracks, To Rid The Disease and Weakness.
