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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 78.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 79.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.8.

This album would be one of my desert island discs. How can an album be this energetic, organic, heartbreaking and spiritual all at the same time?
A flawless masterpiece!!!

my all time fav album that hooked me into music back in 90s
Some classic tracks, but the filler is relatively low quality.
Awesome, a small step below Blood Sugar Sex Magik.
Favorites: Around The World, Emit Remmus, Purple Stain.
Pretty good album, although not as good as BSSM and on level with One Hot Minute. I love the groovy tracks like 'Easily' and 'Get On Top',
- Easily, Get On Top, Right On Time, This Velvet Glove, Road Trippin'
A decent album that has some songs that remembers me my childhood.
The best RHCP album, not over rated, maybe just over played.
It's hard to rate this album as it is so closely related to my teenage years. It's like the soundtrack of my youth. However, this is one the few albums I was into as a teen that I still like as of today. That's the Red Hot Chili Peppers, one of the few bands that stand the test of time for me. As for this particular album, I don't think it's their best (that would be Blood Sugar Sex Magic or By The Way), but it is still a very strong one that helped cement the RHCP legacy.
The first half of the album has been played over and over on the radio and heard a million times, so it's kind of hard to be impartial to it. The second half however, is full of hidden gems like "I Like Dirt", "Purple Stain" and "This Velvet Glove".
