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 79.4/100, a mean average of 78.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.5.

A timeless masterpiece. If I had to choose one single favorite album of all times it will be this one! Pure magic in my opinion.
Thinking is The Best Way To Travel
Trippy mellotron overload. A Couple of great songs from the MB repertoire and a psychedelic music landmark.
I was really impressed by this, not so much a flowing concept album as Days of Future Passed, the songs are more stand-alone. The Moodies will have been accused of being a bit light-weight as a rock band, when compared to their British fellows, but "Ride My See-Saw" really rocks. There's a lot of great melody in the songs, some have probably compared the chorus of "House of Four Doors" to Beethoven's 9th Symphony("Ode to Joy"), "Legend of a Mind" with its eerie ♫"Timothy Learyyyyy"♫ followed by the organ melody and "The Word/Om" with it's sitar, tabla and Indian spirituality.
Favoritas: House Of Four Doors, Legend Of a Mind, Voices In The Sky, Best Way To Travel
So many classics on this album, which is hard to do given the variety of sounds and styles involved. The Moodies had 5 quality songwriters and 4 quality vocalists, making for a broad listening experience on any of their classic albums.
Great 60's album, the last track is just pure magic.
The whole album combines a lot of genres that were already there or where spawning in the 60's.
This comment is beneath your viewing threshold.
60's masterpiece composed of sophisticated songs between psychedelic and progressive rock. Simply a delight!
