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 16% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 74.3/100, a mean average of 73.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.4.

The title track is one of the best songs every written in my opinion. Other than that there isn't an awful lot to recommend. It is good, but it's classed as an EP and not an album.

Great stuff by the masters of progressive Metal, especially Funeral For A Friend/Love Lies Bleeding and The Big Medley...

Contains a single unbelievable 24-minute song (A Change of Seasons, and a few decent covers. A must-own for Dream Theater/prog fans; the 24-minute epic is as close to classic prog as Dream Theater would come until Octavarium 10 years later.
