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 8% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.2/100, a mean average of 75.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.8.

I first listened to this album when I was 12 years old after watching Wings of Desire by Wim Wenders, because they were part of the soundtrack. I became so obsessed with this album I think I might have listened to it a hundred times. And it amazes me how every time, it still surprises me.

One of the greatest prog/post-punk albums ever recorded, with texture and invention to spare. Dark, visual, unusual and masterfully executed. An immaculate and underrated tour de force. A psychedelic masterpiece. Difficult music indeed, for people who appreciate a challenging listen over spoon-fed regurgitated sameness.
