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)

So glad this has been bumped to 7th overall.
An incredible odyssey of introspective soul searching that ends before you've had time to digest the emotional changes the album has put you through so you listen again and again and again. Beautiful.
This album is perfection in every posssible way. Great lyrics, fantastic vocals and gorgeous production that gives goosebumps while listening to. There is no bad track on here, they're all great but my favorite is probably title track, so simple and yet so beautiful.
Wish You Were Here changed my whole outlook on music. It's probably the only album that only took one listen for me to fall in love with. I see it as a very lonely album because of it's shortage of lyrics, (and also because I discovered it during the pandemic as I was by myself for three months). Shine On You Crazy Diamond may be the best track of all time. Although the themes may not be as complex as Dark Side, the music is life-changing.
Track score 93. Place in my top albums chart 4th. Rating 100
I'm not usually a fan of 10+ minute songs, but I make an exception for both Shine On You Crazy Diamond tracks. Welcome To The Machine is a bit disappointing, but that is made up for by the title track which is quite simply one of the best songs ever written.
Para mí, el mejor disco de rock progresivo de la historia.
When I was a kid with my first guitar, Wish You Were Here was my white whale. I still play it at gigs, 30 years later. It's required listening for all of my Guitar students, as well.
Gilmour's solos in Shine On are some of the greatest electric guitar playing in classic rock history. Wright's keyboard work is some of the best ever recorded. This album is amazing.
Segundo álbum del cuarteto de discos mágico de Pink Floyd (sobre todo trio). A la altura del DSOTM y por tanto uno de los mejores discos de todos los tiempos. Me hubiera encantado estar en esas sesiones de grabación. Ver esos cuatro músicos en acción tuvo que ser espectacular.
Solamente Shine on your crazy Diamond vale cada segundo en oro. Impresionante canción. Por supuesto, el resto de canciones no se quedan atrás. Wish you were Here, es muy emotiva.
