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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 79.9/100, a mean average of 78.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.8.

If you have some acid do it then listen to this album.
If not it's still worth a listen, but not everybody's taste for sure.

A couple of fun tracks keep this from being a completely tedious and self-indulgent affair.

I've not yet heard too many albums in this certain genre, but I did enjoy this album a fair amount for going in pretty blind as to what it would sound like.

Se fosse lançada hoje ainda seria tendência. Espetacular aproximação do rock com o eletrônico e o soul.

A decent album full of good songs and catchy riffs, I'm doubtful that it deserves to be anywhere near the top 200, but music is after all subjective. The problem comes with the lack of brevity. Their are several songs that clock in around the seven minute mark, often with the repetition of a single idea. This includes the obnoxiously long Come Together.
Bonafini is right that its deepest sentiment is 'we wanna get high and not care' but I don't think thats the point. It's an album that's worth a listen, but don't be afraid to skip the occassional minute or two in a song, chances are you won't miss a thing.
