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)

Massive album full of noise loops; very engaging and can catch you off guard on repeat listens
Favorite track: Rhesus Negative
Continuing with the motif of loud noises we have World Eater, the fourth album from Blanck Mass, the side-project of Fuck Buttons’ Benjamin John Power. There’s a brilliant focus on beats and samples here, distorted and amplified as if they were running away from the songs they originally came from.
This is awesome! Haven’t stopped playing it since last week. Although the songs progress extremely well, use a variety of types of samples and boast a mean, noisy production style, the transitions between songs are really what make this album. Specifically from “Rhesus Negative” to “Please”. Sounds better in headphones though, as if that needed to be said.
Not as abrasive as I thought it'd be after reading that glowing Pitchfork review, but it's still a quality, propulsive LP from Benjamin Power a.k.a. Blanck Mass. The creative carnival intro morphs into "Rhesus Negative" - a furious 9 minute track that's clearly the highlight of the album.
The rest of the record ranges from pretty good to great electronic music that sounds like a mix between the EDM of Skrillex & the alien electronica of Aphex Twin. With closer "Hive Mind", the album ends on a high point. Overall, "World Eater" is an admirable and surprisingly accessible LP that deserves to be heard by a wider audience.
Very original and intense album.
