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)

Favorite prog album
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.
really quite sensational big rock and roll sound fantastic melodies astounding lyrics
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.
One of the best progressive rock albums of all time.
Great Progressive Rock album you must hear it to understand. Favorite tracks: 2112, Passage to Bangkok, Something For Nothing.
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.

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
