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)

No song on this album should be rated below an 85. This is a masterpiece, as are By the Way, Blood Sugar Sex Magik and Stadium Arcadium. This hatred for RHCP music needs to stop. They are in the same league as Nirvana and Pearl Jam.
Nowadays, after 22 years....It's already a Classic in Rock music. Probably the best album from RHCP. Amazing!!
Personally, the most important album to me and that I will ever hear, since it shaped my childhood and they're my favourite band of all time. I've never heard a band sound as rejuvenated as they do on this album. It's also my favourite album cover ever. I could gaze at it for eternity.
Pour moi, un tournant pour le groupe, les grosses lignes de basse disparaissent, des mélodies plus édulcorées, j'aime moins par rapport aux albums précédents, mais ça reste très efficace.
A pretty good album with a couple great songs. Some of the styles used are not for me though...
They stand at an interchange do the peppers, a junction where all forms of music meet. Sure there’s funk and punk, rap and metal. But there’s also surf and soul, grunge and blues.
What makes them great is the ability to blend these sounds, to twist them into something that is always The chilli peppers’ unique sound.
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!!!
