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 80.5/100, a mean average of 79.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.7.

Epic album, the first track is unbelievable and the second has great melody, then it goes a little worse but the tracks are still good, but not great.

This is a difficult album to rate. Side 1 has the classic epic 2112, starting a string of great Rush records. The other side is mediocre and salvaged mostly by brilliant musicianship.

It is a must-listen for every prog fan. If only for side 1.

Puta viagem sem sair do lugar. Os solos de guitarra são precisos e a bateria, pra variar, perfeita.

2112 is fantastic, no doubt about that. However, I am not so positive about side 2 of the album. Yeah, they're OK songs, but nothing to be fascinated about. Sure, I have the perspective of 2020, which is not the same from the perspective of the late 70's and 80's where prog rock was not in its best shape and this album probably was important in that sense.

While Moving Pictures is definitely a more entertaining album, as a work of art, this one is their pinnacle.

Rush at their proggiest. Sounds a bit cheesy now but very much a product of the time.
