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 has a Bayesian average rating of 73.2/100, a mean average of 71.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.9.

Many people say Procol Harum went downhill after Salty Dog and didn't recover until Grand Hotel, but I don't think this is true. Harum, in my opinion, nearly managed to top A Salty Dog with the wonderful Home.

This album manages to be of consistently high quality throughout, but the best tracks are 'Barnyard Story', 'Whaling Stories', 'Piggy Pig Pig' and 'Your Own Choice' (Coincidentally the final 4 tracks).

This album has a lot of electric guitar, but also incorporates the piano and organ that they are famous for, getting that hard balance between the two just right (Though it is, in places, a bit too rocky).
