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 83.4/100, a mean average of 82.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.4.

Van’s most accessible and beautiful album. It’s so unfair that rock n roll’s best vocalist is also one of its best songwriters.

Some of Van Morrison's finest work - "And it Stoned Me" and "Into the Mystic" stand out particularly for me. The rest of the album is really great as well, with no filler. Can't recommend it enough.

It's great, it's jazzy and it's better than Astral Weeks. No filler.

My favourite Van album contains 10 great tracks standouts being Moondance, And It Stoned Me, Crazy Love, These Dreams Of You. Overall this is his most complete album more soulfull than anything else he has done.
