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 5% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.8/100, a mean average of 76.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.3.

A good live record. The only fault I have is the recording is bit murky.

I'm not necessarily a big fan of the Peter Gabriel Genesis. So I like this live document as a good compilation of their strengths from that era. I like it better than any of their studio albums with Gabriel at the helm.

A fantastic live document of the Gabriel era. The 2007 version adds part of the Lamb show in LA from 1975.
