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 82.0/100, a mean average of 80.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.1.

Very different from everything else they did, almost like it is a very different band, but also their most accesible. Better than The Wall for sure, but I have to check their other classics more.

Good for a debut, sadly we never will know how the band could had evolve with Syd as the leader, but in the other hand progressive floyd is the best

Overrated on this site, it's the start of an awesome band but this record is mediocre. Sonetimes its great psychedelia, but somtimes it's just weird sh*t without any listening appeal.

It took a long while for me to listen to this - I love Floyd but their sweeping leads and fuller 70s sound. There is some genius on here and my fav are Astronomy Domine, Lucifer Sam and Interstellar Overdrive. Much of the album is poppy though - with sometimes a hint of psychedelics - but I didn't get blown away by it overall

No suelo adentrarme mucho en la época Barret.
Este disco está bien, pero es muy psicodélico para mi

This is part of the great Pink Floyd conundrum! If anyone made this as a one off, I think I'd love it, but as a PF album I feel it doesn't pack the same punch.

Este album es una joyita de la psicodelia, y me hace confirmar que 1967 fue el mejor año de la historia de la música: el Sgt. Pepper's, The Velvet Underground and Nico, Their Satanic Majesties Request, The Doors y ahora escuché el album debut de Pink Floyd, que tiene nada más y nada menos que el idiosincrático nombre The Piper at the Gates of Dawn... Genial. Este album contiene psicodelia en cada uno de sus temas. Mi favorita DE LEJOS ha sido Lucifer Sam, me da un toque a Rolling Stones en Aftermath. Está genial esa canción, encima sobre el gato de Satanás, tenía que ser también un tema en drogas, un tema imprescindible para los artistas que tocan rock psicódelico. Otra canción que quiero destacar es Bike, la última del album, me parece que en el último minuto trata de hacer algo parecido al final de A Day in the Life, que también culmina con su album, en ese caso, el Sgt. Pepper's. Wow, me ha superado la ingente calidad de este album. Yo siempre estoy dispuesto a escuchar el rock psicodélico porque es tan destripable, es decir, que tiene muchas capas en cada uno de los instrumentos, y eso está épico.

Lo que me sienta mal es que por dos décimas no haya podido ponerle 85, pues por ahora tiene un 80. En fin, seguro que crecerá esta música que tanto me ha impresionado en esta primera escuchada.

It was a real pleasure listening to this album again especially to Astronomy Domine and Interstellar Overdrive which must be the first of something. But the genius of Syd Barrett shines on every single diamond on this album.
