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)

I had high expectations for that record and tehy are mostly flufilled. Red is a kickass starter to the album of the same title and then Fallen Angel is even better, actually it's one of their best songs, One More Red Nightmare is great but a little too long and then the lowest point of the record which is Providence - this is experimental nonsense that could be twice shorter, but the ending track Starless is making this album 10 times better, such a beautiful piece of music. Overall their second best after In The Court Of The Crimson King.
King Crimson went out with a bang. After this, Fripp, Wetton and Bruford went their separate ways. What a way to end an era.
KC isn't only responsible for helping prog rock to emerge. They also put the final nail in the coffin with Starless. Fripp's one-note solo on this amazing piece of music is quintessential anti prog.
This album isn't perfect. But the highlight are so high.
Very strong progressive rock album from King Crimson. Features the career highlight Starless and some other great tracks, like Fallen Angel and One More Red Nightmare. It's not the most accessible prog album (nor is it King Crimson's best, see ITCOTCK), but it's a really good one once you absorb the sound it's going for. Bill Bruford on drums and John Wetton on base really shine in this lean King Crimson lineup, all behind the genius of guitarist Robert Fripp of course. Must-listen for prog fans, recommended for all.
The execution on the last track could've been a bit better than it is, mostly the guitars, but what an amazing record.
The most influential album from the band.
This album has 3 songs I consider to be masterpieces. They are: Red, Fallen Angel, and of course, Starless.
Starless is one of the greatest songs I've ever heard, and it works as the perfect finale.
Grande nível de experimentação, mas sem perder o ritmo. Excelente.
I really didn't like this album. I can appreciate its genius tho
I’m so glad it’s digital now
