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 78.2/100, a mean average of 76.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 19.5.

Favourite track: Suite Sister Mary
Not a bad album, it's just not my type of metal and I don't really care for it. Although I admire technical aspects especially guitar work and progression.
Genial! As viradas, a lírica e a intensidade atingida!
There is a lot to love on this record but also quite a bit that holds it back from being as good as it could possibly be. Starting with the positives, there are some absolutely phenomenal tracks on here which are brilliant pieces of prog metal. The guitar work on songs such as I Don't Believe In Love, Revolution Calling and the title track is just staggering, and they completely blow me away every time I hear this record. The vocals are very strong as well with him commanding every track and putting so much power behind the words which give them even more meaning. This is an intelligently wrote album also and it is a lot of fun to be able to explore the lyrics on here. However, where the record is weak in my opinion is the production. It does feel quite dated in the modern era, especially the drum work which sounds completely out of place at times. I also believe there is a reasonable amount of filler on here that could be cut down and the album would be more effective at a shorter run time. Overall, some brilliant moments on this record that demonstrate how good they can be but they aren't consistent enough on here in my opinion.
Got this album shortly after it came out. No matter how many times I listened to it, for some reason it wasn't gelling. Didn't listen to it for over a decade. I've been re-visiting it of late seeing if I'd missed something the first time round. Sorry, still not connecting with me. Win some. Lose some. It's not bad, but I can't hold it in the classic status it's been given.
This album really deserves 100% or 5 gold stars, but I only gave 95%! The reason is the sampled drum sound, which annoys me more and more over time. I also hear a time lag in the sampled drum sound, which certainly doesn't exist with real drums. If there should be a remix it would be really cool to edit the drum sound...
This is a masterpiece of progressive metal.
why this is rated so low???
An absolute masterpiece and probably the best concept album ever. Changed my life.
It's decent, but no standout tracks to me.
