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 rated in the top 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 84.6/100, a mean average of 83.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.4.

Pretty great album. Has a lot of throwback 80s sounds, and in some place can be quite beautiful. The album feels like a journey and a reflection of the suburban life, ending with some hope in the amazing Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains). One of the great records of the 2010s.
I've always found this significantly less enjoyable than both Neon Bible and Funeral.
Magique, magnifique, que dire de plus, un de mes tops.
Definitely better than Funeral where I'm concerned, but still boring. Some good tracks here and there and the record hold its own amongst its contemporaries but... there's so much more I rather listen to first.
not as good as funeral but definately a deserved grammy
This seems like a greatest hits more tan a studio album. This is great and also not so great at the same time.
Funeral is definitely a more solid album. But still, The Suburbs has this unique ethereal atmosphere that I enjoy more than any other AF albums. Definitely in the top 3 of best albums of the last decade.
This album feels great. Isn't that all that really matters?
All Songs are My Fav. tracks.
