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 albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 79.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 80.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.8.

Still think Zeit is their best work, but this is pretty incredible early ambient music

From another world, even now in 2018. Some really eerie use of Mellotron and the first album where the Moog Modular carved out those hypnotic bass sequences. A meditation in sound.

This milestone 1974 Krautrock recording achieved unexpected commercial success, inadvertently kickstarting the then fledgling career of Richard Branson who would go on become a world leader in sycophancy and tax avoidance.

I could see why people are saying it hasn't aged as gracefully. But to me this is excellent. A cold and spacious record that will set the blueprint for decades to come.

It may be influential, but it has not aged well. Zeit is far superior in my opinion.

Revolutionary space music. Up there with the likes of pioneering ambient works from Brian Eno, or masterpieces from Krautrock legends "Can". Chilly and dreamy, this album was a definite template for most of the beautiful, wintry ambient music released after 1974 until the present day.
Unmissable.

It's alright. Been on quite a bit of a krautrock binge lately. Cannot help but feel that this record is a less enjoyable version of "Future Days." Still a cool atmosphere, obviously very influential toward the development of ambient music (just like a lot of krautrock), not a ton of personal enjoyment though.
