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 23% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 74.0/100, a mean average of 73.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.4.

As i am becoming more and more abdicted to prog folk, i really feel to suggest this album; lovely and peaceful for every music lover.
Psychedelic folk, as pure and as hallucinogenic as can be. The band really earns their name with this record and completely eschews any pop sensibilities that they had in their previous album. Filled with wonderful and eclectic contributions from both leads. Songs dance between wildly different ideas effortlessly throughout but none as much as "A Very Cellular Song". I'd let Mike Heron's nurturing aura guide me through any trip. I'd say that "Water" is a little out there. Potentially a masterpiece in my eyes and a massive achievement for the group.
horrid musical torture. monotone out of key gibberish instrumental
Beautiful music it should be ranked higher. This is pure folk music at it’s best. My favorite tracks: Koeeoaddi There, The Minotaur‘s Song and Waltz Of The New Moon.
It may be historically important but it is not my cup of tea.
This comment is beneath your viewing threshold.
I once read that in the biographie of the band, the writer described this album as "holy". I can't think of a word that suites this album better. This is holy music.
The hangman's beautiful daughter, is one of the best British folk albums of all time. It's a stunning record full of wit, invention and originality. Every track has something to offer. Opener, Koeeoaddi there, is great, and, the minotaur's song, is wonderfully bizarre, a folk hymn gone mad. The centrepiece of the album is the jaw dropping epic, a cellular song, with, waltz of the new moon, and, swift as the wind, other highlights. There's nothing weak here. A genius record.
The best acid folk album of all time, there aren't any other contenders. Astounding album that has to be experienced as a continous piece of music, to get the full mind blowing effect.
No song rated under 80... album rating 74?? what
