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 82.9/100, a mean average of 82.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.7.

Great compilation I played this over and over until it was time to seek out all the studio albums.

Are there any other bands that have recreated or reinvented this sound? (Like Oasis and the Beatles). I’d like to know. The doors were great and this is a very good collection. Love Me Two Times is my personal favourite but the organ makes their music stand out on many tracks.

A nice two disc collection containing most of the essential tracks form this seminal group. If you only want one Doors CD this is it.
