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 is a fantastic singer songwriter album. Elliott Smith's voice is brilliant on here with his emotional style making the music feel so melancholic and sad. This helps to create a great atmosphere that is well maintained throughout the release. The guitar work is sensational as well with it feeling so personal and easily relatable. The song writing is mature and intelligent also and is well worth exploring whilst listening along. Overall, this is an elite Elliott Smith record that demonstrates his vocal and instrumental talents brilliantly.
One of the best examples of singer-songwriting. This is an album I can consistently return to, and it only gets better.
His voice is pitch perfect and fits so well with the musical style. A clear and rare spiritual descendant of Dylan.
Great singer song-writing does always good things for your mind and body.
Bitter, sad and beautiful.
I find this easier to listen to from start to finish than XO, though the latter might be more varied. Both great albums.
One of the quintessential singer-songwriters.
La verdad es que no esperaba encontrarme este pedazo de disco. Música tranquila, gran voz,... Muy buen disco
Deveria ser mais valorizado! Puta álbum!
Incredible album, surprisingly catchy with a lot of dark, thoughtful lyrics. RIP Elliott.

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
