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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 83.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 84.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.3.

Selling England by the Pound was classic Genesis hitting on all cylinders, and the band put together a completely original and musically superior album like no other. Although it would pale in comparison to the commercial success of the band’s pop-oriented 1980s album, it nearly topped the charts in the UK, which was a big deal at the time. But where there album shines is artistically, and on this front it belongs on the list of best ever.

I love Genesis and I love this album, but it's not perfect. I think More Fool Me is the only flawed song, I never got the distaste for The Battle of Epping Forest. I don't think this is their best, but it is an incredibly fantastic record, a definite must listen for any prog rock snobs, 70s enthusiasts, and music lovers in general.

El mejor album de Genesis y de los mejores del progresivo en la historia.

Selling England by the Pound es el album donde encontramos los avances sonoros que tenía la banda en ese momento.

La voz emotiva y vibrante en Dancing with the Moonlit Knight de un Gabriel en su mejor momento, la guitarra de Hackett y el piano y sintetizadores de Banks en Firth of Fifth nos regalan una obra maestra en la historia del progresivo.

Siendo este el primer album en que Banks trabajaba con sintetizadores.

El trabajo en la sección rítmica de Collins y Rutherford es una armonía perfecta.

La atmosfera que crean los integrantes de Genesis hace de Selling England by the Pound en una obra maestra y un clásico en la música en general.

Un album metafórico y sinfónico en su totalidad!

The best Genesis album regardless of prog or pop. Steve Hackett (the guitarist) is playing the album in its entirety this year. Firth of Fifth puts me in an altered state every time I listen to it and a friend of mine claimed that it gave him visions of hiking Annapurna.

One of the many great albums from Genesis, the greatest band of all time. "The Battle of Epping Forest" sounded pretty weird at first, but after hundreds of listens I think it's one of the most underrated Genesis songs.

One of the greatest prog albums ever recorded, with all members operating at the top of their respective abilities. Gabriel's vocals are superb and bring extra life to many of the songs, Banks is reaching top form as a keyboardist, Hackett's guitar work cuts through tracks like a hot knife, Rutherford's overlooked bass playing sets the stage, and Collins delivers arguably his finest performances behind the kit.

This is probably the most popular pick for best Genesis album, and there is plenty of reason it is. The first 3 tracks are among their best songs (with opinions some people hating or loving I Know What I Like, I personally love it). These three tracks back to back are enough to make it a classic album alone, but then you have 3 other incredible tracks. I would call it a perfect album if it wasn't for the slight disappointment that is More Fool Me, and the Moonlit Knight reprise (Aisle of Plenty) doesn't work as well as the band might have intended, and it would have been better to just end the album with Cinema Show.
