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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 81.5/100, a mean average of 80.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.4.

The fact that Cannonball and Just Another Nervous Wreck both are rated 79/100 is atrocious. Both are top 10 Supertramp songs.

The album that made me understand the genius of Supertramp. Pretty much every song is great, I just don’t really like Casual Conversations.

Very consistent and beautiful album, but in my opinion not as cohesive and outstanding as Crime of the Century.

Standouts: The Logical Song, Goodbye Stranger, Child of Vision.

A very very close second to Crime of the Century with 'The Logical Song' and 'Goodbye Stranger' standing out particularly. However, for me 'Take the Long Way Home' is the cherry on the cake!
