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 mean average rating of 90.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 91.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.1.

SOYCD May be the greatest song ever.
As good as music gets.
This album is a true grower, I was underwhelmed on the first listen but over time it's become (for me obviously) the most bulletproof Floyd release for repeat listens. Me and some friends listened to this about 20 times in a row in Amsterdam, and it never got boring somehow. That's crazy.
The only album I've given a 10/10 for every track. The only album I can imagine doing so...
and yet, it doesn't grab me like others. I know, it sounds stupid, how can every song be perfect, making a perfect album, if you don't even care for it THAT much? I think it's irrefutably INCREDIBLE music, but for some reason, it just doesn't appeal to me like it once did. For whatever reason. It makes sense to my mind, anyway.
I hear it with joy in my ears. I like The first part of Shine On You Crazy Diamond and the last part. The other tracks are good but only Wish You Were Here come close to Shine on You... but i must say this album is great songs about the Music Industry and Welcome to The Machine with his words are very pleasant. Immortal for the Eternity.
Fav. Tracks: Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Pts. I-V + VI-XI), Wish You Were Here.
best progressive rock album ever!!!!
Brilliant album. This comes really to close to DSOTM.
Amazing album, perhaps the most technical of all time
This album is amazing every single song is perfect and flows incredibly well. Probably my 2nd favourite album 2nd only to Kid A
