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 Bayesian average rating of 92.3/100, a mean average of 91.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 92.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.9.

Totally understand this being at the Top. Was great when released and is still great now. Having said that, I prefer The Wall and The Final Cut. Maybe I just like Roger Waters a tad bit more than David Gilmour

Not my favorite by Pink Floyd, but it's an unparalleled achievement for sure. The first thing that comes to mind when the word "album" is mentioned. Brain Damage and Eclipse are easily my favorite tracks here and have to be among the best album closers ever.

AHHHHHH I want to say this album is overrated sooo bad! But every single time I listen to it I am blown away! The fact that this album was created in 1973 is ridiculous and way ahead of its time! Every song on this album is perfect absolutely perfect.

La petite merveille des Pink Floyd, les puristes diront peut être qu'ils perdent le côté psyché, moi je trouve qu'ils ont enfin trouvé le juste de milieu.
