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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.2/100, a mean average of 77.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.3.

This is so so much an improvement on The Candlelight Years boxset, or as separate albums, Orchid, Morningrise and My Arms, Your Hearse.

The less growl/snarl I hear, the more I like this band. Coil and Hex Omega are the best tracks.

I immediately write off any tracks with growl/snarl as this is ruination.

Opeth has always been a mix of Mikael Åkerfeldt's two musical obsessions: metal and prog rock. To my ear, their catalogue starts more metal and trends more prog, with this album being the perfect midway point. I consider this their best album in that it represents such a nice blend of both styles; it's a prog-metal masterpiece.

Favorite tracks: Heir Apparent, Porcelain Heart, Burden
