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 has a Bayesian average rating of 71.1/100, a mean average of 68.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 70.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.7.

This to me is Dark Passion Play part 2, but just not as good.

Nightwish's best and most eclectic release. Sure, it's cheesy in a few places, but that's just par for the course for the genre. Song of Myself is one of the best songs in the symphonic metal genre (and easily a top-5 Nightwish track) if you exclude the lengthy poem coda (I still like that segment through). Slow, Love, Slow proves that Anette is a great singer. The lead single, Storytime, rivals Nightwish's best singles. The Crow, The Owl, and the Dove is a beautiful tune that was accompanied by a touching fan-made music video. Ghost River is the perfect balance between symphonic and power metal. What puts this album above the rest of the catalog is the sheer scope and number of above average songs - there are very few duds on this album.
