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 17% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.0/100, a mean average of 74.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 11.5.

Not bad, but not their best. I found the A side to be stronger, with Triad (a David Crosby song) to be the most interesting. The rest plays out in a fuzzy, forgettable way that sort of haunts a lot of Airplane material.

I put this one right up there with Baxter's and Pillow. It has some of Grace's best vocals and makes for an excellent listen throughout.

Grace Slick's voice is just incredible, and as usual the songs she wrote are the best. My favorite Jefferson Airplane album

I've always loved Grace's lead vocals numbers.
She shines in 'Leather', 'Triad' and 'Greasy heart' wich I think are the best songs here along with 'In time'.
A step below are 'Crown of creation' and "Ice cream phoenix'.
The rest is average but not every record can be a masterpiece so...
A very good album overall.

More like, surrealistic pillow, after the psychedelic experimentation of, Baxters, it's probably the last great Jefferson Airplane album. Some great tracks, lather, the title track and David Crosby's, triad. Airplane, epitomized that Californian sixties hippy thing that it was never going to work in the seventies. Still, they made three great records. How beautiful was Grace Slick in those days?

Lather tells a creepy, yet compelling story.

The Airplane’s third in their four-album string of some of the best music of the decade: Surrealistic Pillow-After Bathing at Baxter’s-Crown of Creation-Volunteers. You wouldn’t be wrong if you ranked the records in that order, either. Crown has as its highlights the amazing title cut, as well as “In Time,” “Ice Cream Phoenix,” “Greasy Heart,” the lovely “Triad,” and the offbeat “Lather.” A must have for sixties aficionados.
