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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 83.2/100, a mean average of 82.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.1.

This album has no right to be this long, especially since many of the songs aren’t great.

An absolutely legendary rock opera, and a staple album of the 90s. The run time is initially daunting, but I find myself getting lost in how well it all melds together that it just passes the time.

Both sides have really high highs, love 1979, We Only Come Out At Night, Zero, and Porcelina just to name a short few.

Better than Siamese Dream.

Too many tracks. A lot of them are good yes... but too many nonetheless.

I like it, but i like the second side more than side one. My favorite Songs are: Tonight, Tonight, Bullet With Butterfly Wings, and Stumbleine.
Great album with loud and silent songs that is the mixture for a great album a mix of both.

It's hard to rate this against Siamese Dream, because Siamese Dream is almost a perfect album. I think it's better just because there's so much more to choose from though. Pop songs, soft songs, synth songs, heavy songs, grunge songs, etc. Not to mention, when I really think about it, I like the singles off Melon Collie better than the singles off Siamese Dream. This is the essential Pumkins album, and one of the greatest albums ever penned. An absolute masterpiece. I think it's underrated just because of the length, which for me is honestly a plus. If you like 90's music you can find something here, as mentioned above. Take the time and listen to both discs all the way through. You won't be disappointed.

Very cinematic and great production but just too long for a higher score.

This is one of my favorite album listening experiences, it just goes to so many different places and accomplishes them all almost perfectly, there are probably a couple of songs that could've been cut but honestly, I'm glad that they weren't just listening to something this consistently good for that long is a really neat experience
