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 17% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 74.9/100, a mean average of 73.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.2.

A little bit of the then trendy rock-classical crossover mixed with a lot of Jefferson Airplane = A prog rock monster is born! Not quite over the top enough to make the experiment a success, but at least 75% of this record is 'a trip'.

Violin prog! Or maybe it's not yet prog - the prog elements are good deal less intrusive here than with fellow violin enthusiasts High Tide and Gentle Giant. At any rate, 'It Happened Today' is an impressive opener - Sonja Kristina croons in hallucinatory fashion overtop crashing pianos and climbing guitars before giving way to a pastoral series of filter washes that serve to introduce Paul Sax' violin. 'Hide and Seek' and 'Situations' are also quite good. 'Vivaldi' and its reiteration 'Vivaldi with Cannons' are the album's main missteps. 'Vivaldi' begins as an innocuous gimmick - an exercise in violin-driven rock - but it gets pretty grating in the middle sections. Still, the album is quite pleasant, if a little slight.
