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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.2/100, a mean average of 79.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 9.7.

This is a great album. Doubt I would have heard this one without BEA. Great melodies, interesting lyrics. Album has a solid vibe to it and bears repeated listening. A lost gem for certain.

Definitely a psychedelic rock masterpiece. I wonder why this album has been forgotten... Great melodies, fine acoustic arrangements and captivating vocals.

Great lost psychedelic. Beautiful arrangements with string overdubs a la "Forever Changes" and strongly influenced by it. You can clearly hear these influences in "A Horn Playing On My Thin Wall", "Look At The Wind", "Look To The Sun" and "Didn't" among others. In other respects it draws from jazz as in "Look At The Wind" even from "The Velvet Underground And Nico" and "The Doors" as in "Something New You Can Hide In".

Add this to the ones that you have to listen before you die.
