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 79.1/100, a mean average of 78.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.2.

I'm not the biggest Brian Eno fan, but I admire how ahead of its time was this album. It's experimental, but it's not balanced so we have great 1st half and not so good 2nd half.

For me the 1st 3 Roxy Music albums are all great in different ways. The party vibe used sets the tone perfectly.

This is my first full listen of this album!. Roxy is quite unique in tonal quality, choices of instrumentation, and chords.What comes to the track order, this clearly frontloaded, the hits are on the A-side.
For a regular pop fan, this is a challenging album. Very ingenious and eclectic.

The first half of this album is excellent, but the rest doesn't quite reach the same level.

Top tracks: Virginia Plain, Re-Make/Re-Model, Ladytron

Solid debut, which in ‘72 must have sounded like rock n roll from Mars. Clearly influenced by Bowie and Zappa, but with their own very distinct sound.

Solid album that doesn't drag except a little at the end.
