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)

Great debut for Talking Heads, lyrics are insane and instrumentals are mostly great, but it's not a perfect record: Happy Day and Who Is It? could be thrown away.
Great Debut album from a fine band.
catchphrases thumpy thump he can't sing too bad new wave
I apologise to everyone on behalf of the last reviewers overly-long, rambling, boring comment about other bands.
This comment is beneath your viewing threshold.
Great album, god awful album cover
An interesting and funky album. A very cohesive album tied together by the band's unity and a general aesthetic of absurdity. The songwriting is exceptionally creative and the music can be held to the same standard for most of the album. The lyrics can get a little distracting at times and the instrumentation is a little lacking at points. My favorite songs are "Who Is It?" and "The Book I Read".
Favorite Tracks:The Book I Read, Don't Worry About The Government
An opening decent debut album for one of the best bands all time
Good start to a really good band.
