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 91.3/100, a mean average of 89.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 91.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.0.

What perfection sounds like
My favourite album ever!!! No words for those guitar solos. Just close your eyes and listen.....
Best Floyd album, absolutely great. Have A Cigar and Wish You Were Here are the highlights, with the sandwich of Shine On You Crazy Diamond great bookends.
Que dire de cet album ? Un Pink Floyd qui fait le boulot. Certain me trouveront dur, mais hors mis Wish You Were Here, je ne vibre pas sur cette album comme j'ai pu vibrer sur The Dark Side Of The Moon, Th Wall ou encore Animals
The only thing I would have changed about this album is having one of the Pink Floyd members sing "Have a Cigar" instead of Roy Harper
This is the best album by Pink Floyd. Why? Themes: It better conveys the themes of lunacy and loneliness that were expressed in the previous album, DSoTM, and also incorporates other themes like corporate greed. Composition: the structure of the album is better than Dark Side. Some of the interludes in Dark Side are awkward, unlike this album. Besides that, I enjoy the albums pretty much the same. Lyrically, Dark Side and this album are pretty on par. However, this album just has a small edge over Dark Side, in my humble opinion.
Greatest of all time if judging on a track by track basis, there's only 5 of them though, still legendary,
I sometimes took this album for granted because all these songs are overplayed on the radio. But I remember my Dad saying this was his favorite album of all time and so I gave it a spin for the first time in years. There is no denying it's a masterpiece. Perfect sequencing and flow from start to finish.
My favorite album of all time. Absolutely flawless.
I've never really got into progressive rock. I find it to be a consuming investment, which is where I struggle with casual playback. That being said, there's just something about this record that flows so naturally -- you cant pull your ears away from it. Pink Floyd's best.
