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 has a Bayesian average rating of 72.5/100, a mean average of 72.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 72.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 10.6.

A solid debut from the Airplane - like the title, it Takes Off! Nice time capsule back to the era and totally reflective of the group's signature sound.

I felt they underutilized the powerful voice of Signe Toly Anderson in this album - her appearances are too few and far between, as she really shines in the spotlight. They wouldn't make the same mistake with Grace Slick!

Debut album from Jefferson Airplane before Grace Slick joined the group. It's quite conservative considering their future releases, and it's a little uneven, but it's enjoyable enough. Just not essential.

Doesn’t reach the highs of their next four albums with Grace Slick (though Signe Anderson is fine) but a good record, nonetheless. “Blues From An Airplane” and the cover of “Tobacco Road” are terrific, and “Let Me In,” “Come Up The Years,” and “Let's Get Together” are good signs of things to come.

A very good debut album by the most famous Californian psych rock band. Although it is the only one without Grace Slick, Signe Anderson had a very similar voice to hers. Marty Balin did a great job on this album, both as a songwriter and as a singer, his voice is full of 'heart and soul'. Great bass work by Casady too.
