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 4% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.3/100, a mean average of 75.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.6.

Crisp as anything.
All Steeley Dan albums sound the same, only completely different. This is the one Becker didn't make... Its good, like all the rest...
For your pleasure listen this a high quality album, a lasting mark of quality never goes out of fashion,
fluffy jazz fusion rock
Streamlined and funky Steely Dan. Might be better than any Steely Dan album, it's that good.
Lyrics about post war / gold era of mainstream USA (50's) memories
Just picked up the CD of this one at my local Barnes and Noble for under 5 bucks! I've listened to just the first five songs so far, but I love this album already! The cuts "I.G.Y." and "New Frontier" are just fantastic. They're easily as good as the best of any Steely Dan songs. What a nice surprise this disc turned out to be!
I might like this album more than it deserves to be liked.
"IL" disco perfetto: come suono, produzione, arrangiamenti, scaletta, scrittura...
Beautiful Hi Fi sound, nice Beatlesque melodies, clever lyrics (on the theme: the future seen from the 50's).
Arguably better than any Steely Dan album.
Perhaps, the last two songs are not as emotional as the rest. I wish he ended the album with a slower, nostalgic song like the first one.

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
