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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.5/100, a mean average of 76.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.3.

This album sounds more like Rainbow than Sabbath, but it's better than their three previous albums.
This is not Sabbath, not metal just hard rock. Some good Iommi solos on the last track
This record feels a little to similar to stuff I have heard before and is missing that spark that separates them from the crowd. It just feels a little generic and it gets lost amongst the rest of the Sabbath discography for me. There are a couple of weak tracks as well and moments that could be skipped. I just never get the desire to put this album on especially with the other amazing records around it. However, I do love the guitar on this album and I think it is just as strong as ever. Some of the riffs and solos completely carry tracks and if I was going to be drawn back to this release it would be for the guitar. Overall, there are a few good songs on here but I do think this record gets over rated and it feels a bit flat unfortunately.
'Heaven And Hell' is a bit overrated in my opinion. Musically it's decent, and Dio's voice is phenomenal as always. But it's a very different sound from the classic era and Dio's lyrics make zero sense to me. I do not, however, think they should have disbanded after Ozzy left. In fact, 'Headless Cross' is my seventh favourite Sabbath album (after the first six). Neon Knights is phenomenal, granted, but I prefer 'Mob Rules' and even 'The Devil You Know' over this album. I'm glad it's lauded by many, and I'm glad the band continued, but this just doesn't do a great deal for me.
This showed that even without ozzy, black sabbath could still deliver great material. They haven't sounded this inspired since Sabbath Bloody Sabbath in 1973
Fantastic album. One of Sabbath's best. Big ask for Ronnie to replace Ozzy but there'd of been no regrets. His vocals give a lighter feel than with all previous Ozzy albums but still as heavy as fuck. Makes it sound like a different band, but still in the same caliber of greatness. Outstanding.
An absolute classic - Dio at his best as Sabbath return to the top.
Top tracks: Heaven and Hell, Die Young, Neon Knights, Children of the Sea
Doesn't sound ANYTHING like Sabbath. They should of disbanded after Ozzy left.
While not as phenomenal as the first 6 Ozzy albums, this is still a classic in its own way. It's a bit less heavy, more melodic, and much less doom-y than the sound they had in the early 70's. Neon Knights, Children of the Sea, the title track, and Die Young are absolute classics.
I can't not give this a 100.
