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 79.6/100, a mean average of 79.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.3.

Fantastic, beautiful album that could only exist in the late 60s. It sounds like a legitimate response to Pet Sounds and Sgt. Peppers. Really blown away.

Brilliant album, every bit the equal of the Beatles' or Beach Boys' contemporary efforts. Though unfortunately known to only a small few. The songwriting here is top-notch, with some brilliant production touches and creative arrangements. Not a weak moment here. Wonderful.

This album is phenomenal! I was pleasantly surprised to discover an album I like as much as "Pet Sounds" or "Odyssey & Oracle" suddenly out of nowhere. I would have loved to hear more from this band beyond "Begin".

I prefer the other Curt Boettcher project Sagittarius.
