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 17% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 74.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 75.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.7.

spacey, exploratory and original, a truly fantastic album. demands a complete listen to fully get the whole experience. Standouts are help-slipknot-franklin's tower, sage and spirit, and Blues for allah, king solomon's marbles, and crazy fingers.

This is a really good album. I need to be in the mood to listen to it as it's very atmospheric.

This is one of my favorite albums, I've listened to it countless times. that being said, I dont think Blues for Allah is the best song, i think its meant to be empty and desolate like a desert but its not incredibly fun to listen to and it's 12 minutes, also the flute in sage and spirit can bother my ears a bit, I still think both are good songs.
