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 82.2/100, a mean average of 80.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.2.

A really great album, and on par with the 2007 version of the song remain the same. The sound quality is superb , and apart from some of the tracks being bit on long side its thumbs up.
A great live album when they were at the peak of their career.
One of the best live albums I've ever heard. Many live albums do not translate well. Such is not the case here. Some of the live versions of these songs are even better than the studio recordings, such as Moby Dick.
I own this on CD but don't class it as a true Zeppelin classic, mainly because it was released several years after the band ceased to exist and after the sad departure from this world of John Bonham. For this reason I cannot really see how it sits ahead of Presence and In Through the Outdoor. The high score is for the content of songs, not the album as a whole if that makes sense.
Truly Zeppelin at their peak, just wished the vinyl didn't cost an arm and a leg
Solid Live album, probably would've been much more successful if it was released during their career.
Also, I find myself coming back to listen to the acoustic songs at least like 3 times a week, simply fantastic renditions of those songs.
Please release on vinyl Jimmy.
Certainly better than, the song remains the same. Finally, Led Zeppelin release a live album worthy of their legendary status. Great performances, still, Moby dick, is as boring, as dull, and as tortuous as ever. The rest? Brilliant.
Great 1972 live. Led Zeppelin are the best live band of the history.
For three hours, not a bad album at all. I would do without the 20:00 tracks, but the rest was great, and the beginning rocked!
