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 84.8/100, a mean average of 84.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.8.

I always think of this one as the Pet Sounds of the UK. Fantastic from top to bottom.
After many, many listens still hasn’t grown on me. Time of the season is of course a classic and the rest of the album is nice but nothing outstanding. So many people seem to love this album but for me, it’s pretty average.
This is an extremely effective record with there being so many songs that get stuck in your head for weeks after listening to this album. This is because it is just so infectious with the group writing some fantastic hooks and melodies that are impossible not to love. We open and close the release with two of the best examples of the groups catchiness with Care Of Cell 44 being my favourite ever Zombies track. The vocals are a big help towards this with some beautiful demonstrations across the whole run time which includes solo displays and some brilliant harmonies. Then there is the instrumentals which are creative and fun making this an enjoyable ride right from the start. Overall, this is one of those albums that is just so enjoyable to listen to that you get completely lost in the music and just fall in love with the group.
I mean, I get why people think this sounds similar to Sgt. Peppers?? But idk, I think they're on a totally different vibe. Still, it's a very very good record. It had been on my wishlist for a long time and finally got around to listening to it. A lot of songs to digest right now, but I'll be revisiting it in the coming days.
This album grew on me a lot, I love it right now.
Similar to Sgt peppers, but better
Si Who Loves the Sun de VU tuviera un disco entero, sería este, o si se hiciera un Pet Sounds Volumen 2. Increíble demostración de baroque pop, que como contemporáneo de los discos de los Beatles o incluso del mismo Pet Sounds, no llega a la perfección de estos, pero se acomoda muy bien como un disco memorable que debe ser escuchado y reconocido como un album de culto. Las mejores: Time of the Season y Care of Cell 4. Qué GRAN género el pop barroco.
Definitely can be compared to Sgt.Peppers and Pet Sounds, same style, same effect.

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 :(
