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)

Don' t forget "when a blind man cries"
One of the albums that inspired heavy metal and all hard rock genres to come, my favorite album with Ian Gillan, Jon Lord here is top tier keyboardist ever
Top notch hard rock, Highway Star is an all time great. Smoke On The Water and Lazy are classics too. Amazing instrumentals on this one and the vigals are pretty consistent as well.
Machine Head was a monster album for Deep Purple and fans. The musicianship and vocals are excellent throughout. There are no filler songs at all. It's a wild excursion from beginning to end. Ritchie Blackmore is a killer guitarist. Jon Lord's keyboard playing is utterly innovative; he's like a second guitarist at times. Great album all around!
El mejor disco de los Purple y un imprescindible del hard Rock.
Canciones como Lazy o Highway Star son de lo mejorcito que se puede escuchar con Blackmore y Lord en su punto más álgido.
No sobra ni una sola canción y Smoke on the water sigue siendo un gran tema a pesar de su sobreexposición
one of my earliest purchases still excellent overall these years guitar, keyboards vocals the complete package.
So many iconic tunes, as classic as it gets.
Amazing instrumentation throughout! Highway Star is amongst my favorite guitar solos of all time. Pictures of Home and Lazy were also highlights for me. I have mixed feelings about Ian's vocals (a bit too....arena rock maybe on a couple of tracks?) and some of the lyrics here are uninspired.
A good album filled with hits, Pitcure of home, highway stars and space truckin' are my favs.
Classic Album for sure! Rating (82.86)
