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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 82.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 82.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.0.

This is the best Genesis album by far, just for having Suppers Ready alone! Every other track is just as good, with Time Table being just slightly less impressive than everything else. Despite that I still consider this one of the few perfect Prog Rock albums. Suppers Ready is an absolute masterpiece and the band could have quit right there if they wanted to, and still be legends going out on top. I think Horizons is a severely underrated track, serves as a great preparation for Supper's Ready, and sounds like something Bach would have composed for guitar if he could.

El segundo mejor disco de Genesis en mi opinión. Un disco fundamental en una colección de rock progresivo y yo diría de música rock en general. Watcher Of The Skies y Supper´s Ready son dos temas formidables.

I really like this album because it is just so epic, beautiful, and inspiring. I think Supper's Ready is more accessible than any other sidelong epic ever made, yet it is still extremely complex and in my opinion the most epic of all! This is music you can really feel.

This album helped me become a prog rock fan. Love every track of this album, especially supper's ready which contains some of the best sound I've heard in my life.

Supper's Ready is still one of the best songs ever written. At the least in top 20.

Much better prog than the Lamb Lies Down on Broadway. I really like the acoustic guitar solo Horizons. It reminds me of one of my favorite operas, the Barber of Seville!
