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 78.1/100, a mean average of 77.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.0.

One of the true pioneers of the electronic genre who does a fantastic job on this record in creating such a clean sound that is still fresh to this day. The quality and smoothness of this record is brilliant and the way it transitions from one song to the next is sensational. The whole record feels like one giant song and that makes for a cohesive listen meaning we can properly get engulfed by the music. Jean-Michel Jarre is an absolute genius with a synthesiser and he paved the way for several people to follow in his footsteps through this album as his influence is obvious in later electronic acts. He makes every track so rich with layers that you can discover new things with each listen. A few of the songs can be a little slow and feel empty at times I think that is a product of its time and we just have to appreciate how amazing this album is. Overall, an album that is wonderfully smooth and is a fantastic experience if you are looking to just sit back, relax and enjoy some great music.

Jean-Michel Jarre recorded this album in his dining room. It is testament to his superb compositional and production skills that it still sounds fresh today, over 45 years on. The synths bubble and burble away throughout, creating soundscapes beyond anything that had been done before. There are many who knock the man - his coolness rating was never really there, and I think being French brought his credibility factor down several notches - but the fact remains that this is a seminal and inspirational work, as well as being highly listenable. Outstanding.
Impressive electronic record for 1976, one of the predecessors with Autobahn (Kraftwerk) and Phaedra (Tangerine Dream)
This comment is beneath your viewing threshold.
Never seems to get the respect or the coolness points. Or the acknowledgement. No it's not tangerine dream, kraftwerk, moroder etc. But still a pioneer and and a great electronic record. It also is recorded very well, pristine, part of why it has a timeless quality to it. Right up there (along with the cooler names) as a major foundation in the origins of dance/electronic or whatever you call it club sounds. Anyone who tells you otherwise is wrong.
this is great ... in 1976 electronic music started with this album. Jean Michel Jarre is the father of all DJ's.
Imensa capacidade imersiva! Mto inovador!
An absolute "must" in the field of electronic music. My favorite is the sixth part.
