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 mean average rating of 81.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 82.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.9.

He Would Have Laughed
Favorite Tracks:Memory Boy, Basement Scene
I enjoyed this a lot. Hadn't heard Deerhunter before listening to this one and assumed, given the cover, it would be a lot darker, but anyway, I wasn't disappointed with what I heard.
Very good album, only a bit of filler. probably the best of the 2010s.
Art rock done extremely well. Two notable things to this album;
1) It has very engaging atmospherics ranging from distantly dreamy to psychedelically fuzzy with it's layers of guitar coming to the fore in certain songs.
2) It is a complete album of exceptional songs without a filler or mediocre moment.
It's also lyrically elusive in a good way. Bradford Cox's vocals seem a half dimension away. I was lucky enough to see them play in support of this album in a small intimate venue and they impressed with their stage presence.
ALBUM HIGHLIGHT: The outro guitar build to Desire Lines is immense and you know it's good when you want it to continue when the finish comes.
Have to concede that I had no idea what to expect with this album and quite liked it through multiple listens.
I just recently discovered this album and I must say it's amazing. The only thing I didn't like is that the first track sets you up for a different kind of album. I expected other kind of songs but it's still a beautiful trip.
Best songs: Earthquake, Desire Lines, Helicopter, He Would Have Laughed
Very good album. Interestingly enough, I am not very impressed by the tracks that seem to be most highly rated here, namely Desire Lines and Helicopter. Some of the other tracks I find absolute gems, such as Basement Scene and Coronado. The final part of He Would Have Laughed is also very strong.
A little bit fucked by millenial's trendy loudness but still a very good album!
This album puts the listener into a roller coaster of emotions, with the opener earthquake, a nice, slow song that is just the tip of the iceberg, to the lively banger of revival, the introspective Sailing, to the absolutely heart-wrenching Helicopter, to the upbeat Coronado, to the lament of he would've laughed. Quintessential
