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 5% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 76.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 77.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.8.

Iron Maiden with guitar- and bass-synteszisers. For some old School fans a complete "No go", compareable to Judas Priests "Turbo". But here are some of the finest Maiden tracks ever, even if they are not among favorites of the common Maiden-Fan. Wasted years, Deja Vu, The Loneliness Of The Long Distance Runner... Great stuff!

Otra placa injustamente infravalorada dentro de la discografía de Iron Maiden, pues se tiende a olvidar este disco al hablar de lo mejor del grupo, y ciertamente es un error, pues a pesar del cambio de estilo en la banda con la introducción de los ya célebres sintetizadores, lo cierto es que el disco tiene unas canciones con una pegada tremenda. Además, el disco destaca por su variedad, pues tenemos piezas directas al cuello como "Wasted years" o "Sea of madness" pero también tenemos odas a la épica como la magnífica "Alexander the Great", que narra las peripecias y hazañas de Alejandro Magno. No me atrevo ni me atreveré jamás a menospreciar este disco de Iron Maiden, con el que arriesgaron gran parte de su prestigio en favor de la evolución y el resultado no pudo ser mejor. Imprescindible obra, que juega con la ventaja de ganar con las escuchas.

Many fault Maiden for going 80s synth on this album, but that would be selling it short . . . badly. This is an excellent album with mostly excellent cuts. It may not be the pure metal of Number of the Beast or Piece of Mind, but it's still a worthy addition to any NWOBHM collection.

Somewhere in time, is always thought of as the weakest of the Bruce Dickinson eighties albums, and yes, Alexander the great, is terrible, but the rest, especially the first side, is great. Caught somewhere in time, is a great opening track, and, wasted years, is a great pop metal anthem. Sea of madness, is underrated, and, heaven can wait, is great. Off the second side, stranger in a strange land, is the best, with, long distance runner, and, Deja vu, enjoyable filler. A fun Iron Maiden album, as always.

Maiden started playing with synths for this baby , but didn't quite get it right until seventh son

This is a good album with some great songs
-However it is let down by a few very bad tracks mainly though Lonliness of the Long Distance runner which is both terrible and laughable

For the first half this rivals Powerslave as their best, with killer tracks like Wasted Years and Heaven Can Wait. But it slides badly in the second half, with Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner and Alexander the Great bordering on unintentional comedy.
