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 4% of all albums on This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.3/100, a mean average of 78.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 10.3.

Nevermind the previous comment. I think I was just in a bad mood the day I first listened to it. Some of this jamming is actually quite impressive and cool. I'm bumping it up to 4 stars. The singing and vocal melodies are pretty weak, though.

Listening to snippets of this album made me think "Oh wow, what a powerful, psychedelic sound". Unfortunately buying the album and listening all the way through made me think, "What a waste of time... these songs go nowhere interesting." Still, the sound is impressive, just nothing memorable to grab on to.

A great album to annoy the neighbours, and one of the heaviest albums in history. An incredible maelstrom of dense sledgehammer music. A wall of sound Phil Spectre would be proud of.

From what I can judge this is the heaviest album of the sixties. Also "Pushed, but not forgotten" sounds like something from a Red-era King Crimson album.
