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 79.3/100, a mean average of 78.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.1.

rather similar to music produced at the time does move in a different direction with new music, prog feel to it.

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

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.

For sure my favorite record of theirs. It's not to pop or new wave, and it's not to over produced. Much more raw than their later work.
