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 91.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 92.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.7.

I simply don't understand how this places second to OK Computer - Dark Side is virtually flawless and the song order is impeccable. I have been listening to rock and pop music for a lot of decades and simply have not come across any albums that challenge the supremacy of this timeless classic.

There's so much symbolism in this work. The sythesizers sound great too.

Quite dull. May have sounded interesting at the time. Hasn't aged well.

This album, in my opinion, is in the top 10. I can never get tired or bored listening to it. For the audiophile or casual listener, the recording quality is impressive.

Sometimes I second guess myself, thinking I might be overrating this album, then I go and listen to it again... No, it really is immaculate.
