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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 83.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 83.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.4.

My first CAN experience and it was an enjoyable one , title track "Future Days" is great as is "Bel Air" which takes up the entirety of side B . Absolutely blow's my mind this album was released in 1973 , so assured and mature beyond its 45 years ( gee I'm feeling old )

Definitely giving this one a tick & looking forward to next port of call in 1971's (!) 'Tago Mago'

This album to me feels very similar to Talk Talks acclaimed albums. Slower and more ethereal (in comparison to earlier can releases at least), and albums that I find generally dull, though I can totally see why others might love them. Future Days just lacks the primal feel of Tago Mago and Ege Bamayasi.

My absolute favorite Can album. Not as pretentious as Tago Margo and more expansive at sonic that any other Can album. Bel Air is my all time favorite Can song

Stunning album. Completely ahead of its time, and got there first with the experimental ambient before the pioneer of ambient music himself, Brian Eno.

With this album, Can cement themselves as one of the very best bands of the 70s. A band unafraid to take risks and *really* push boundaries in order to get somewhere new and unexplored. A tremendous achievement from everyone involved.

Their second best record. Krautrock + Ambient = Great sunny day album. Interesting, soft sound. No weak moments. Bel Air is the best band's song. I think Future Days should between 101st and 200th positions.
