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 86.4/100, a mean average of 84.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 86.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.1.

Going into listening to this, I had only hear 2 songs, Comfortably Numb and Another Brick in the Wall pt 2. I remember exactly where I was the first time I listened to this album all the way through. It stays strong throughout the story and is easily the best rock opera ever, and is one of my favorite all around albums of all time

If you compare it to their other stuff, it seems flawed. But this doesn't stop it from being a majestic masterpiece -just like the White album by the Beatles.

Very good albeit a bit bloated, could have been even better.
the last in one of the greatest strings of albums ever.

Hard to think of an album I was more excited listening through for the first time. Of course I was about 12 and just starting to get into music, so I thought it was the best thing I had ever heard. But I don't think that initial listen has ever been topped for me.

The perfect encapsulation of my high school worldview. And more relevant politically than ever.
