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)

Beginning of this album isn't very special, just good old hard rock, but two last tracks are incredibly epic, Stargazer is somewhere high in my best songs of all-time list.
Even if the most sophisticated of Rainbow dischography, actually i prefer Long live Rock 'n Roll; that's an excellent album and very prog oriented, so should definitely be my cup of tea, however, even i considerate Rainbow as an Hard Rock band, and that's their strenght.
Blackmore y Dio en su mejor trabajo. Ya está todo dicho.
Un disco muy épico con una Stargazer impresionante.
Uno de los mejores discos hard rock de la historia.
First time I listened to this album. Best I have heard in a long time.
This is the best album I ever heard. I remember the time when I heard it the first time and how I was at this moment.
If I was alone on a desert island with just one album, it wouldbe this one. Great performance from all the band and A Light In The Black is my favorite song.
RIP Dio, Powell and Bain. Long live to Blackmore and Carey.
Epic album. Best from Rainbow. Last two songs being two of the greatest songs written. Couple of tracks stop it getting the almighty 100 rating but we can overlook that. Second behind 'Heaven & Hell' for any of Dio's work. Up there with Blackmore's best.
A stunning album! Stargazer, Light In The Black, Tarot Woman - all amongst the best work in the careers of both Blackmore and Dio.
What???? Very enjoyable...
I'm speechless. You just have to give it a listen. Its indescribable. Why did I go my whole life without listening to this until just now?!
An enjoyable prog/metal album with every track fine apart from the terrible, at least lyrically anyway, Do you close your eyes. All in all, very similar to Richie Blackmore's previous band Deep Purple. Good, for people who (occasionly) like this kind of thing.

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
