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)

Why is the sky blue, why is water wet, why am I unsure if Animals is the best Pink Floyd album yet?
Pour moi le meilleur album des Pink Floyd. Le titre Dogs est juste sublime.
It combines musicianship and concept better than any of their albums.
A near-perfect record, slightly hindered by "Pigs on the Wing" parts 1 and 2.
This album's strongest trait is that it can get across what it's trying to tell you almost without even having to say anything at all. The instrumentation fits the themes presented in a pure show of talent and mastery.
Almost flawless, every track is amazing, tells a great story and fills you with a feeling of anxiety.
One of the few albums I consider perfect. It is simply flawless. Best songs are Dogs and Pigs (Three Different Ones)
This is the first Floyd album I ever listened to. It happened to be the only Floyd record available at my library. I didn't have money to buy my own records, so it was my only way to get access to album music. Animals introduced me to a whole new world of music. I must have played it 100 times in two weeks.
I still love it. I am happy it has been re-discovered these days as one of their greater albums. It ranks nr 4 on my Floyd list after WYWH, Dark Side and The Wall.
Is it viable to say this is an under rated album. It's fucking great and on par with there other masterpieces. Maybe under rated is the wrong term. Not recognized is probably what I should of said. Anyway, it's a really good album. You should get it.
