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 84.4/100, a mean average of 83.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.5.

A different trip every listen. This album is incredible!
A fantastic and very important album in the history of music and you have to applaud the experimentation of his compositions. It is a genius recording that is packed full of great performances from everyone on the album. Obviously Miles himself is fantastic but you have to give so much credit to McLaughlin as his guitar playing makes this jazz fusion record what it is. Pretty much all of his solos are stunning and really give that extra edge to an album that was already very edgy. It is very difficult to listen to this album and not respect the musicianship and quality that is being played for you and at times you can easily feel overwhelmed by it all. This is mainly due to the erratic and vibrant nature of the album. However, I do think there are issues with this release and I don't think it is his best or most consistent work. For example, it is far to long and does drag as it is a very bloated album. There is a few songs that could be cut down and even though they are two of my favourite tracks, the first two songs could really do with being shortened, especially Pharaoh's Dance. It can also be to slow at times and you do find your concentration drifting away from the album as it is a very tough album to listen to all the way through. Furthermore, I find the musicianship to be a little weaker on the second side compared to the first. Overall, a brilliant display of musical talent that could do with a bit of refining to truly be amongst the elite but it is still a great album.
Pretty long, but with enough substance to stand on his own.
Quite a long noodling psychedelic jazz album that shatters the Earth when it came out. The atmosphere is almost a fever dream to handle, from soothing, to funky, and sometimes, frightening. Not a thing for me at first, but patience is always the key.
seemingly endless rambling. trumpet. jazz.
Last night, I took out a nice pair of headphones, and listened to my first jazz record. I turned out the lights, and instantly became enchanted by this album. It has this otherworldly quality to it that I just can't explain. I give this album the highest of praises I possibly can.
Mi album favorito, llevo escuchandolo 20 años y aun sigo descubriendo cosas entre las pistas de audio, su profundidad es oceanica, Miles y el resto de musicos lograron crear algo que trasciende el tiempo y que aun 50 años despues de su salida sigue sonando igual de fresco, complejo y cañero
No todo el disco me fascina igual, pero Bitches Brew, Spanish Key y Miles run the voodoo down son para mi musica en su mas alto nivel
nervous to say the name of the album around my mom, but I still love it
best jazz fusion ever
