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 71.3/100, a mean average of 70.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 71.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.9.

Probably the Pink Floyd album that grows on you the most. A bit repetitive and sometimes uninspired but if you give it time and establish an emotional connection with the songs (and Roger's feelings) you'll definitely see the album from a more pleasurable perspective.

Feels like a Waters solo release. Some great moments, but overall a bit dreary and empty.

I really, really like this album. Yes it does feel more Roger than Floyd. Yes Dave should have got a bit more solo time. Yes whisper and screaming goes on. The narrative links back to the Father & War backstory in The Wall. But despite all that it is still a cracking album and preferred to the post Roger Floyd - although I also really like them!

The whisper-soft vocals with distant yelling harmonies in the background or sudden burst into screaming loud vocals gets really tiring after a while, and most songs sound really similar to each other. There's not a whole lot of variety going on. Still, it's fairly enjoyable.

I enjoy this a lot more than I should! A bit like the Wall in that it feels like a Waters solo album with the best supporting musicians possible, only more so.
