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 80.2/100, a mean average of 79.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.2.

A good album but the moments that remind me of bad 90s RnB take me out of the vibe

Not the biggest trip hop fan. It sounds too much like smooth jazz is sucking the fun and energy out of hip hop, but this is undeniably a good, interesting, and ground breaking record.

Important album for 3 reasons

1/ It's the debut album for the legendary Massive Attack

2/ It's considered the 1st true Trip Hop album

and

3/ This album would be accompanied by a suit of incredible and award winning video clips that defined Massive Attack and set the bar incredibly high for visual arts for the next generation

'Blue Lines' is unquestionably a ground breaking album

Worth owning the album for 'Safe From Harm' where, without doubt, the stunning female vocal steals the show. One particular thing I like about Massive Attack is the way they record the drums, very up front in the mix and it works, with the other instruments almost sitting in the background.
