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 76.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.8.

There is a certain listening space for this record where it unendingly delivers. In that regard it is amazing. Only "Paracosm" is a standout track that I have listened to unquenchably, the rest are stylistically great but never groundbreaking. I like it better than "Within and Without" due to better production choices (specifically bringing back the reverb-heavy vocals that are more buried in the mix), the more upbeat tone, and the pacing.

An amazing listening experience = good album. But I'm still curious to see what will shows up after more listenings.

While not by any means a fantastic album, Paracosm does do a very good job of evoking a certian feeling, one of dream-like stupor, and that more than makes up for most of its shortcomings.
