|Avg. album rating
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 82.7/100, a mean average of 82.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.8.

This is a superb soundtrack album. I love the main synth sound so much I went and bought a GX80! The atmosphere created puts you in the movie. The opener and Rachel's song are personal favourites.
A fantastic soundtrack to a fantastic movie. This record is so atmospheric and it does such a fantastic job at immersing you into the environment they are trying to create. They can create some beautiful yet disturbing images all with just the use of their instrumentation. The performances we are treated to are just phenomenal and they create tension so well. This album is both relaxing and also discomforting with the likes of Tales Of The Future which really puts me onto the edge of my seat. What really elevates this soundtrack though is the composition which is so wonderfully put together and it creates a whole story just through sound. However, it does slow around the middle part and I can understand the argument that it might be a little boring in places. Overall, a brilliant soundtrack that goes alongside the film perfectly.
My favorite sci-fi movie ever and one of my favorite soundtracks ever.
"It's too bad she won't live, but then again who does?"
Amazing music. There are 3 or 4 versions, all are good, but Vangelis' is the best (not the New American Orchestra version) . Seek out the Vangelis deluxe version which has 2 CDs, lots of extra stuff including a very cool track called Dimitri's Bar.
The Beautifull film with the most beautifull music
Seek the "Esper Edition" online if you enjoy the movie

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
