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 79.9/100, a mean average of 78.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.3.

This is still a solid Iron Maiden album, not on the par with their best albums, but pretty ambitious. Concept is great and guitars are really the greatest part of this record, I can sometimes complain about some uninspired choruses on a couple of tracks. The progressive element works perfectly and title track is a masterpiece.
There is a lot to love on this record but also quite a bit that does make me lose interest a little which holds it back. To start with the positives the music still maintains that classic Iron Maiden sound and the group seem to still be full of ideas on this project. This is evidenced by the slight prog twist this record has which I actually thoroughly enjoy and I think it makes this such a unique release from them. It really gives the album an additional edge whilst making it feel fresh and exciting. The instrumentation is amazing as well and the majority of the solos are simply brilliant. However, what holds it back is a few weaker tracks that lose their way a bit and deviate from the style they were going for. This leads to me zoning out from the record quite a bit as it doesn't keep me fully engaged. Overall, this is a unique album for Iron Maiden and the different style choice really works and makes for a fun listen.
The fact that this is more accessible and appeals to a wider audience doesn't mean that it is not one of their best albums.
Man, this is fucking great.
A terrific sounding album with a incredibly unique and lighter atmosphere. The songwriting is not as strong as on some of their previous records however, and it's a bit easy to get lost on some of the songs. Cuts like "Moonchild", "Can I Play With Madness", the title track, and "the Clairvoyant" are fantastic, with the others at least solidifying the mood of the album. Overall, I can nearly guarantee that it will grow on me with more listens, but my current rating is an 85.
I have a new found appreciation of classic era Maiden. I dipped into them slightly as a kid and bought this on tape at the time. I never really fully liked it though. I always thought it was the keys that put me off but listening now it's probably the production overall. The rhythm guitars don't strike through enough. The keys actually work. Sounds like they went deliberately more commercial production wise, unlike the Metallica S/T where they mix commercial production with drastically shorter and mass appeal songs, here maiden are not pulling back at all even though the singles are commercial, the album isn't sell out at all. I prefer a couple of their previous records over this but this is strong front to back, even though I'm not fussed on production, it's still great. Yes it's daft. So what?
Grande obra-prima da banda. Encontrou o melhor de seu som dos aos 80's. Fundamental para qualquer um que goste de rock ou para entender a música dos anos 80's.

Number 18 on my 100 greatest albums. 4 top 10 singles from this album in the UK, epic title track, no weak tracks. A bit comic book, but why would anyone care?! Highly recommended.
This album has a slight leaning towards prog, which I do like. Three of the tracks are on one of my gym workout playlists, great to pump iron to! 'Can I Play With Madness' is a personal favourite.
