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 3% of all albums on This album has a mean average rating of 81.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 81.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.0.

It's a wet and miserable January morning in 2018, 17 years after the original issue of this album. I lower the needle of my Rega P3 and wait in excited anticipation. The opening synth textures and lead guitar work are reminiscent of Floyd's Shine On but the break comes much sooner delivering an altogther top notch track. The timeless digital bell synth sample on the opening of Dance of the Seven Veils provides the foundation for another blistering Prog track. I love the blend of Nick Barrett vocals, lead guitar and rhythm section on All Over Now. I have read different perspectives on NB's vocals and I have to say that for me the vocals fit the music perfectly and it is easy to distinguish every word in the meaningful lyrics. NB is a truly underrated guitarist. In time I can see this album gaining classic status like Wish You Were Here! I've got to get Masquerade Overture on vinyl now.
