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)

One of the best prog rock albums I've heard. Roundabout is one of the best songs of all time, Heart Of The Sunrise is pretty great too and I don't mind these shorter tracks.
yes top prog rock offering a little dreamy
interesting. Not my favorite, but pretty good.
The three "bigs" are big indeed. The rest is a bit disappointing.
Let me start by saying, I love Yes. It’s the music I listened to endlessly in high school (on a Best Of compilation), and let me say, most of the songs on here are just nonsense. The best songs (Roundabout, Long Distance, Heart) are beautiful pieces of art, but the music in between the phenomenal songs is not worth it.
A masterpiece, arguably the #1 Lp in the history of progressive rock. But what of King Crimson, you might ask? The elites love KC... deep, brooding and complex. This album stands above, to me, personally, because of the more melodic structures.
Roundabout is up there with Stairway to Heaven and Bohemian Rhapsody for me! It's mind boggling to think that such an incredible composition could even be written! Yes was known for their albums, but that song is really what cemented them in Prog history.
Good album. I wish "America" was included.
This album is an amazing collection of complex yet accessible tunes. Roundabout and Heart of the Sunrise in particular are amazing. My only complaint is that the songs don't flow very well together, in my opinion.
Phenomenal! Why is this band not rated higher than they are?
