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)

An outstanding release that is such a rich and detailed experience from beginning to end. This record of full of phenomenal songs, the peak in my opinion is Arriving Somewhere But Not Here, Lazarus and the hugely under rated title track which really opens the record in style. Lazarus is possibly one of their best ever tracks and is a musical marvel that stuns me every time I hear it. The rest of the tracks are only a little bit behind these in terms of quality making this a very consistent and cohesive listen. Steven Wilson's song writing is brilliant and the delivery of his words back this up making for a record that is perfect for exploring. Then there is the instrumental layering which is deep and complex with some outstanding performances on guitar, bass, drums and many more making for a listen that never gets stale even if you constantly keep coming back. It is a long record though so I can see the arguments of people getting tired or fatigued mid way through but in my opinion this shouldn't really effect most listeners as there is enough going on to keep you thoroughly entertained. Overall, a masterpiece that is beautifully composed and it really deserves more praise than it gets along with the band in general who are criminally under rated.
This album has a track score for me of 91.11 and is placed @ 10 in my overall chart with a rating of 100
More excellence by Porcupine Tree. Another great mix of metal, prog rock and piano-based ballads - as is common with their brilliantly diverse albums. My highlights are Arriving Somewhere But Not Here, Start Of Something Beautiful and the beautiful Lazarus.
Steven Wilson doing his thing again, genius
What a finding, what a treasure! This album is simply fantastic and It is highly underrated in this site. My god If every modern Metal album was like this.
Although it is not my favourite PT album (i find it a bit irregular), "Arriving Somewhere but not Here" is a crowning achievement that deserves more exposition
@manurock I’ve listened to Deadwing at least a dozen times, still don’t like Shallow and Halo and still like Lazarus. Of course it’s not the only masterpiece here but it is one of the best songs imo :)
@LedZep you are mostly right with the tracks that aren't that good, but you say you find "Lazarus" the masterpiece of this album... it's a nice song but I think that you should listen to the album a few more times ;)
Some tracks just haven't struck me, Open Car, Halo and Shallow aren't that good IMO... Still there is a perfection called Lazarus and this is just short of a 'masterpiece'
