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 8% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 76.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 76.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.5.

A great concept album that grows on you with each listen. Some say pretentious, what concept album isn't? You could probably sat that about any ambitious musical statement. There are some great moments here and they all add up to a fantastic whole. Great fun. Do it!

This was fairly a great album. Through the first half I had this as a future favorite. Definitely some fantastic lyrics on display and worth a listen. Partly tribal

666 was the final chapter of the best greek band of the late 60s, a progressive gem written by Vangelis. The album created a scandal in Greece (a very traditional, regigious and dictatorship country at that time) and was very quickly banned... Aphrodite's child had a very short lifetime, they could have last much longer if the points of vue of Demis Roussos and Vangelis where converging : Demis was more gig and touring oriented, Vangelis was introverted and studio oriented.

They were as big as the Beatles in Greece in those days. Then Demis Roussos and Vangelis went their own way. I followed Vangelis myself. Among the top prog concept albums. Irene Papas on "Infinity" is let's just stay ... coming and going!?!?!?!

App, what happened with me is that I started out loving it and it slowly started to irritate me the more I listened. So it might go the opposite direction with you :)

666(The Acopalypse of John, 13/18)is the one of the early cult/progopera in the rock history.In many view, 666 was much more conceptic and progressive rock oriented than any band had done before.
