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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 80.4/100, a mean average of 79.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.2.

Very consistent and very fun. A good variety of sounds tied together by Kinks-like subject matter. Crisp songwriting and guitars. The Who seem very comfortable on this album.

If I was played this without being told the artist, never in a million years would I guess The Who. This has to be my favourite Who album, even without listeneing to the rest. I am not a Mod fan and am surprised by how psychedelic this is, which is right up my street! 'I Can See For Miles' has to be my favourite track on the album. Moments of madness aka 'Gong like', mix with classical interludes which makes the listening experience very enjoyable. Great psychedelic guitar sound and just listen to what Keith Moon is doing behind that Slingerland kit!

A fun album to listen to, good guitar chords, kind of pshychedelic. I used to like this album more, but now I think is not Who's best form.

Concepito come una serie di pezzi intervallati da finti spot radiofonici, presa in giro del consumismo, "Sell out" mette in fila un filotto di canzoni tra le migliori del canzoniere Who e le veste di pop lisergico, il più delle volte servendo un buon lavoro. Insomma, NON il "Satanic Majesties" degli Who.

This album is an interesting case. Individually, I'm not a huge fan of any of the songs, but as a whole, it's an amazing listen.

Amazing album. I don't like very much any other album by the Who -I find them quite boring-, but this one is just pure psycodelic greatness. I would like the Who much more if they have stayed with this almost LSD sound.
