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 81.6/100, a mean average of 80.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.1.

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'

My estimation of this album (and this artist) goes up over time. I think at least 7 of these songs are damned perfect.

Top notch Psychedelic and Progressive Rock, that creates one of the most consistently atmosspheric albums I ever listened to. Arriving Somewhere But Not Here is a Top 5 favorites song for me.

Love this album. Never loved PT so much that I listened to them all the time... but never, ever put them away for too long. This really is one of their best.
