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 mean average rating of 67.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 67.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.2.

Their first album post Roger and you can easily see that it has Dave Gilmour's more melodic sound and gone is some of Roger Waters craziness - nevertheless, still a fantastic album with superb solo's throughout.
Love the drive on Dogs Of War and the final track Sorrow amongst other top tunes
This has been described by the remaining members of Pink Floyd as their "look at us, we're still here" album. It certainly is louder than a lot of what they've produced before. It does sound rooted in the 80s, but it has weathered its dating quite well, thanks largely to the abundance of great tunes it holds. There's barely a track which doesn't have a hummable melody (the two parts of A New Machine excluded!), and this is what sets it apart from The Final Cut - a David Gilmour album vs a Roger Waters one. Back to the tracks: standout is One Slip, a driving love song which, some naff sound effects at the beginning excepted, is one of Pink Floyd's best moments. Elsewhere, Terminal Frost raises the stakes on instrumentals. The band would recycle the idea for their album opener on their next LP, The Division Bell, and do it better, but that doesn't detract from a moody piece setting a scene of a band having been away for a little too long. It may not have set the critics on fire, but it stands next to a lot of that which Pink Floyd have done before and after.
Yeah, this album has actually some few pretty good stuff in It, but yeah, it's just a few.
I get why some people rag on this album and dismiss it as a David Gilmour solo album. The feel of the album is 180 degrees from The Final Cut and The Wall and other Waters’ inspirations. That being said, this album is a beautiful piece of guitar rock. David speaks louder than words with his guitar playing on this album, particularly “Yet Another Movie”, “One Slip”, and “Sorrow”. Yes, it’s different, but this album still feels self contained with the dominate feel, sound, and atmosphere throughout. Is this a sell out? I don’t know, maybe Gilmour was hungry for money, but I think this is more than that. This is David Gilmour showing that Pink Floyd is more than just Roger Waters or for that matter David Gilmour. This band is an evolving, full immersive band in spite of the absences of members over the years. I enjoy this album a lot!
Imagine what this album could have been if all members of the band were present and getting on, including Roger Waters. That said it is an excellent album although Pink Floyd in name only given that Nick and Rick's contribution was fairly minimal. It is without doubt David Gilmour's first solo album as was 'The Final Cut' to Roger Waters. It is closer to 'Wish You Were Here' than 'The Wall' which is a step in the right direction. Much as I like 'The Wall', there is an overbearing sad theme accentuated by bitterness which is Roger Waters childhood. This theme re-surfaced on 'The Final Cut' but has gone forever from this album onwards.
Bad lyrics but the music is more important and it's great. David Gilmore also has a great solo.
It may not really be a Floyd album, cos Nick is not on here at all (let's be honest) and Rick barely is, but in the end it does sound Floyd's and has some very high quality music. Terminal Frost, Yet Another Movie and On the Turning Away are all excellent, and most of the others are still good. Shame about A New Machine though.
Clearly a very good album and I am a massive fan of Pink Floyd. However, at points it was a little bit 'movie soundtrack' for my liking. On the other hand, other songs are brilliant, worth a listen.
This has always been one of my favorite Floyd albums up there with the Wall. Learning to Fly and Dogs of War are just great tunes....
A momentary lapse, was the first Pink Floyd album after the departure of Roger Waters. If, the final cut, was a Waters solo record, then momentary lapse, is David Gilmour's baby, considering that Nick Mason only pays on a few tracks and Rick Wright is nothing more than a hired hand. Even though parts of the LP are fine, it still sounds like a bunch of middle aged millionaires making an excuse to go on tour and make more money. Still, learning to fly, and, on the turning away, are good tracks, but although the rest is mainly fine, you still get the feeling of, so what? But, it is Floyd, so it's still just about listenable, although certainly not essential, and just a bit pointless.
