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 has a mean average rating of 72.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 72.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.6.

Dirty Projectors comments
It got unduly panned upon its first release for the extremely personal and selfish nature of the songwriting and I think that's unfair. Following a bad breakup how many of us are truly proud of the things we feel? The fact that Dave produced an album which makes the listener reflect on the nature of those thoughts in the same way that he clearly does (the end of the album is rather uplifting and apologetic) should be commended. Musically the weird R&B thing that he tries here works only occasionally. Some really high highs and some tracks that you just can't wait for the end of. Par for the course with a Dirty Projectors record though and that's the cost of radical experimentation.
Nice sound experiments but the songwriting's not good enough to hold my interest. Music as a lifestyle accessory for fashion-forward graduate students. Will probably get a couple of earnest rotations in the nerdiest weekend rental unit on fire island this summer.
Very interesting and experimental however, it's parts are greater than it's whole.
It started off super strong, but I lost some interest during the end of this..still solid release tho
It's full of solemn reflections, hopeful realisations & entrancingly nunced instrumentals layers. Sure, this Longstreth's best attempt at Bon Iver but it's also his best as a solo act.
