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 84.8/100, a mean average of 83.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.8.

This popular, iconic album was clearly innovative for its time, but I find it a tad overrated for its psychedelic reputation, and a bit too inconsistent to meet the hype. That's being said, it has plenty of shining moments and is certainly worth listening through front to back.

Childish melodies and teen dissonances.
Vocals that don't add anything to the music.
Dumb lyrics (sounds like someone who never tried hallucinogenic drugs fakin' it).
Disoriented solos.
I love Bruce Botnick's work on The Doors' albums but this mix just takes off the whole energy.

In the end "Alone again or", "Andmoreagain" and the strings & horns arrangements are the only things avoiding me of calling this an absolute shit.

One of the best records of the 60 and very close to the top of 1967.

I tend to sway with popular opinion, but this is one album where the collective reverence is lost on me.

'Alone Again Or' and 'You Set the Scene' are some favorites. Personally, it's not one of my favorite albums of the sixties, but it still holds up as a record that stands out among its contemporaries.

I didn't particularly love anything on this album, all the songs seem a bit overdeveloped yet flimsy. The songs are nice though, they're pleasant to listen to.
