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 84.7/100, a mean average of 83.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.9.

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.
This comment is beneath your viewing threshold.
Very pretty and well produced. An impressive array of original material. Some of the songs border on cheesy I think. Clearly influenced by Sgt. Pepper which I'm sure was influenced by the Zombies' earlier work. Surprised this wasn't commercially successful at release.
Time of the Season is just a remarkable tune that every classic rock fan needs to hear at least once.
Buen disco. Mucha psicodelia.
Time of the season es un temazo
Can an album be simultaneously over- and under-rated?
@2nd-Impressions Nonsense. Hung Up on a Dream is maybe the most gorgeous song they ever wrote. Time of the Season is cool but not great and doesn't even fit the spirit of the album that well. They were clearly trying to recapture She's Not There's vibe to craft another hit single.
