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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 80.9/100, a mean average of 80.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.4.

Another big improvement over the last album, just like Kontroversy was over the ones before it.
Sunny Afternoon and Rosy Won't You Please Come Home are exceptional songs by any standard.

Face to Face is a nice collection of songs about non-traditional subjects. It builds on ideas made popular by The Beatles like using Indian-influenced sounds and singing about mundanity though it seems like The Kinks were oppositely concerned with taxes before the Fab Four. The album serves as a masterclass in songwriting. It effortlessly switches from song to song and subject to subject without losing much quality in lyrics. There are some tracks that aren't as good as the others. "Session Man" and "House In The Country" push the ordinary too far for me and I can't help but be bored listening to them. "Too Much On My Mind" and "Sunny Afternoon", on the other hand, are both great showcases of their ability. I also enjoyed "Fancy" and "I'll Remember" mostly for their sound more than their lyrical content.

In this album The Kinks goes in a new direction in their sound, not so guitar-based, and more introspective Ray Davies's lyrics.

Liked this quite a lot, although it was a bit inconsistent. One absolutely killer track!

A very good album but with some imbalance.
Rosie won't you please come home, Dandy and generally speaking the first half is very very good.

The second half is good but a lot less interesting except for Sunny Afternoon of course wich is the best song in the album.
