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 8% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.1/100, a mean average of 75.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.7.

A beautiful, dreamy album only let down by 'Low Low Low'
Makes me drift away.......

Quite simply, for me, one of the top 10 best albums ever made - how it has gone under the radar I do not know. It is superb, lyrically & sonically. Brian Eno was working with the band in this era and you can hear it come through in the music, it's subtle, emotional and takes the listener on a dreamy trip. Fantastic !

A album overlooked by the prejudice that James are a one hit wonder whose only good song is "Laid". This album totally blew me away after I lifted my own prejudice against it.
