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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 80.0/100, a mean average of 79.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.8.

The bass playing on here by Lemmy is astonishing and the roots of Motorhead are clear. Amazing Live Album!

Hawkwind have always been a band you've got to experience in a live setting to fully appreciate and this is as close as you're going to get to catching them in their early 70s glory.

Brilliant 'Live' album. Captures the classic Hawkwind experience. Saw them on this tour, and it was awesome, and fuckin' loud as Hell..! So, that's the way to play it... LOUD!!!

The greatest live album of all time without question. Really captures their early 70's sound with all the bleeps and whistling and humming computer noises, as well as a barrage of incredible riffs and spaced out songs. Unbelievable !!!!!

Saw them live at Massey Hall in 1974 and it was scary great. This album is a pale imitation of the real thing but it's all we have. Imagine what Hawkwind could have done if they had Radiohead's 21st century technology! :D
