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 15% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 74.4/100, a mean average of 73.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.4.

I do feel for Opeth fans. However, it was Heritage that enabled me to appreciate the band and to delve into their past. Although most people prefer this to Heritage, to me, it is not quite as strong.

Although it saddens me that Opeth abandoned their metal roots, I have to admit that they've emerged as a truly formidable progressive rock band. This one probably won't have any lasting interest to me, but for prog-rock, it is quite good. The tracks are tight, even as they meander. If it just had a little less organ...

Cusp Of Eternity and Faith In Others are the best parts. Lot more quiet in 2014 than in previous decades.
