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 82.2/100, a mean average of 81.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.2.

I never heard of this album before, but I see it as an underrated masterpiece. Great instrumentation throughout all the tracks, and the only song that I don't like at all is Dreamer, but on the other hand Hide In Your Shell is one of the best 70s songs I've ever heard.

I have never heard a single song from this band and looking forward to liking it?. The first tracks sound great.
A decent mixture of pop, rock, and prog is difficult to achieve without going too deep, nd make it a mess.

Supertramp is one of the best bands from the 70's. Starting with this album, they brought us joy with great music. Great compositions, so well played, truly awesome.

No misses on this album. Truly awesome: School, Bloody well right, Dreamer, Rudy, Crime of the Century

The best Supertramp record: great prog rock with complex songs, great diversity of instruments and it emotionally connects with me. Criminally underrated masterpiece !

Standouts: School, Hide in Your Shell, Rudy, Crime of the Century
