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 mean average rating of 87.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 88.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.8.

Great album. Consisten from start to finish. Most of the best songs of that year came out from this record.

It’s a very important album, and most of the songs are great and interesting, but it’s one of the many albums where it’s influence and history (possibly album cover too) has overshadowed its actual quality. The last two songs are boring, and annoying at the same time. Influential, but not entirely enjoyable to listen to at times.

The highs of this album are amongst my favourite songs ever, I think it's a couple of misfires (such as European son) off of perfection but with such ambitious approaches it's hard to achieve perfection. Venus in furs I believe to be one of the best most revolutionary songs in rock music. I see the black Angel's death song to be one of the most underrated. During a period of fantasy world psychadelic sounds, this album creates a raw, gritty and real feel. I prefer the bands second album but this album is a near immpeccable multicolored experience with what I believe to contain a large amount of the bands finest work.

Good album i like the beginning the most and the voice of Nico brings it the special effect. But I don´t like the parts where you can hear the screaming of instruments i´m very sensitive of this sounds. But the lyrics i like very much and it´s influence on music afterwards. I give it 90 Points. 10 Minus while the sounds are some bad screaming and squeak.
