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 Bayesian average rating of 83.9/100, a mean average of 82.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.2.

Very good, very british sounding album, impressive instrumentals, generally great vocals.

I like prog. There are all kinds of variations. Seems like I'm more the Yes, King Crimson and Pink Floyd type.

I do like this album. But I don't love it. It feels self-important.

Having said this, there are highlights on this for sure. I especially like Firth of the Fifth and The Cinema Show.

This is one of the great prog albums.
Firth of Fifth is so beautiful and gripping.

This album insists upon itself. Highlight: "After the Ordeal." Lowlight: "The Battle of Ebbing Forest."

Stereo mix ruins it, but the original version is perfect

Very artistic and very English, the opening line says it all really. Most of it is wonderful. However, I've never really got The Battle Of Epping Forest, it's ponderously long and too wordy for me. My favourite is The Cinema Show and as a piece of music only bettered by the earlier Supper's Ready.

Pas forcément fan de la période Peter Gabriel mais c'est très bien fait, ça reste mon préféré de l'ère Peter Gabriel

Extremely creative, excellently produced and ultimately very memorable, Selling England by the Pound is in the top tier of Genesis albums.
