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 5% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.3/100, a mean average of 76.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.4.

This for me is one of the ten best albums from 1991. And that is saying something because it was when the music scene uncovered new grounds with house, hip hop, trip hop, grunge and so much more.
It takes you to a different ambient world and no, you don't need to take drugs to enjoy it.
This sounds like what aliens probably listen to. Captivating and fascinating.
No matter house or hip hop or even dub, everything is playground for electronic artists to build upon. I'm rather a fan of artists that build something new entirely, but sometimes the atmosphere that's created on top of other styles is a finishing touch that is needed to inspire others to take it to the next level.
Interesting for sure. Fluffy Little Clouds is of course great. Spanish Castles in the Sky is one of those strange tracks that I want to love, the whole vibe and atmosphere and instrumentation of it is really pleasing and has so much potential, and yet its just squandered. The track really undergoes no development, or much variation at all, to my ears. I know its a very vibey/slow record, but other tracks have at least a little more to them.
Disc 2 has some nice songs on it as well, though it can be hard to keep ones head really with it on such a long and atmospheric record. Outlands is nice and Star 6 & 7 8 9 has some fantastic little synth soloing over subtle beats and birds sounds that make it all feel very nice. It closes with a monster of a track that I won't even bother typing the name of, a whirlwind of cascading synths and beats swirling in and out on each other. It took a long time to get to and through, but it is worth it. Maybe the most fully flushed out track on the whole album
Orb didn't invent this genre, but they did play a hand in popularizing it. First disc is better than the second. I love "Little Fluffy Clouds" but with music of this type, where a mood is sustained, I'm looking for something longer.
I can't believe i Just found this. Beautiful, Cinematic sounds, and a Must for fans of electronica and Ambient House.
Fairly new to this and disappointed I let it slip by at the time as I only bought the fluffy clouds single. Great album.
great listening for adventurers!
