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 has a Bayesian average rating of 70.6/100, a mean average of 68.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 68.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.2.

Very interesting album.
Maybe it´s one of the first Progressive Rock albums as Steppenwolf wrote.
It has power, dynamik, creativity, ideas....
I just don´t like the tunes so much.
To be honest: I don´t like the voice either.
And the sound: Well the sound is annoying, I don´t like the sound as well.

One of the earliest prog albums and one of the best. Mainliner and Reality are utter classics.
