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 17% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.1/100, a mean average of 75.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.5.

I always prefer live albums. Great songs and well played!

I agree with other commentators. It is very good but lacks emotion. I never saw them live but I did see Roger Hodgson. And it was eerie how close to studio versions he played the songs.

Good setlist, well played but it lacks some emotion. It sound like a studio recording of their greatest hits to make a 'Best of'. Some nice suprises within the songs though and not many mistakes (except for the wrong chord in Fool Overture).
Not a necessary release, but a nice addition to your collection when you come across it.

Note: sad it's not a full show.. Give A Little Bit and Sister Moonshine would have been nice to hear one this release.

For me this qlbum was the end of Supertramp -
Their live performance was cold, perfect without fun or soul. The Songs are brilliant but better in the studio than live.

Very under-rated band. This a great collection of their best songs. Crime of the Century and Fool's Overture the standouts
