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 81.7/100, a mean average of 80.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.5.

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

IMO their best Lp by far. I first discovered them with "Crisis, What Crisis?" The quality of that record spurred me to seek out all of their previous work, and I was dumbfounded by the quaity of this then-unknown record by this then-little known band. The first two times I saw them were in small theaters, 200-300 people max. I was able to meet them backstage and have after-show beers. The film screen background during the song "Crime of the Century" was a new, novel concept at the time. The third time I saw them was in an arena of 19,000. They had better sellers late4r, but this was their best.

I have only gotten into Supertramp lately, like in the last few weeks! Have I been living under a stone? How have I missed this band before? Watching Supertramp on YouTube I have realised what incredible musicians were involved in two amazing albums, this and 'Breakfast in America'. Fantastic musicianship throughout.

Not a fan of this band really apart from this. I've had other records by them and got rid. But this is marvellous. It's one of the best sounding vinyls I've ever heard, even though my copy isn't pristine. Do track down a record even if you are just average on this.

The best Supertramp album...period!
Not a weak track or moment on this collection. Listen to it from start to finish. They never came close to ever bettering it prior to or after, Breakfast in America may be their huge international hit but this album is so much better.
