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 packed full of wonderful ideas and is really one of the more experimental records I have heard recently. It really does sound so unique and like there is nothing else out there that sounds like this. The album also flows really well as one songs blends smoothly into the next. However, some songs do feel a bit slow and the back half of the album definitely dips in quality. The instrumentation is also incredible and really demonstrates the musical quality the artist has. Overall, this record is a must listen and provides a really enjoyable experience to the listener.
Love the frenetic energy mixed with the lush instrumentation.

I don't think there's much I can say about this electronic/jazz/cosmic masterpiece that hasn't already been mentioned other than to suggest getting the vinyl for this thing. It sounds fantastic!!!
This is a really odd record. It has seventeen tracks, yet if you're not paying attention to it, it feels more like one long track than many albums that actually are one long track. It just has an odd way of blending together.
When I first found this album, I didn't really enjoy it. Maybe its just that there are so many different little sounds happening that it was hard to process all at once. It definitely has a much more maximalist feel to it, compared to most other IDM. But now, coming back to it, I keep enjoying it more and more. The songs are oddly catchy, considering that they rarely break 3 minutes, and only occasionally stay on the same motif for any period of time.
Much has been made of the jazz influences here, though I don't really hear it. Maybe I'm so advanced that I just don't even hear genre. That's not true though, so I probably just don't know jazz well enough. Either way, its not as overwhelmingly obvious at all as people would make it seem.
85/100 (Very Good)
A highly impressive record from Flying Lotus that appears to have arrived from another plane of existence to greet us. "Cosmogramma" is a smooth yet maddening experimental piece of art that draws from an unholy amount of genres yet miraculously all of these influences manage to come together quite beautifully. Flying Lotus is clearly a man of incredible talent and once you've finished with the interstellar journey that it takes you on, "Cosmogramma" reveals itself to be one of the best albums of the decade, electronic or otherwise.
Fantastic IDM record put out by Flying Lotus.
Favorite Track: Zodiac Shit
Most sonically interesting album I've heard in a while. Jazz influence mixed with an experimental dance vibe (IDM if you will). Thom Yorke feature is the cherry on top for me. It has its flaws, main one being that it builds and builds to a climax which sometimes only tends to last less than a minute before moving onto the next build-up which at times left me wanting more and feeling shorthanded. But this can be forgiven due to the captivation I felt when listening and the amount of unique ideas done in such a refined way.
Great from start to finish. I love the jazz influence, and the ethereal production reminds me of some early 2000s Radiohead
