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)

Sheep is a masterpiece 👏🏻
One of if not the most nihilistic albums of all time. A love or hate situation. A hard pill to swallow.
Very good record, even if I don't often want to listen to it?
What I like most about Animals is how “throw caution to the wind” many of the performances are.
While Gilmour’s guitar parts never fail to be emotive and brilliant, on this album his parts feel more wild and free. From the cheeky acoustic chords, to the talk box soloing, to the outro leads dripping in funky swagger. Even Waters’ bass parts take voicing in ways they hadn’t before. Rick Wright is once again the secret weapon to the album’s success, but once more is a jack-knife instrumentalist filling out the record with handfuls of different sounds.
Animals sonically is almost like Wish You Were Here from a different, more dark and angular plane.
A very good angry political prog album with tons of great solos. It ranks as the third best Pink Floyd album ahead of the Wall in my opinion!
As always with Pink Floyd since Meddle great album, great compositions, brilliant lyrics, I love it.
The Pink Floyd album that is the least immediate requiring a higher level of concentration. The instrumentation takes over and shows just how talented the group really is with their instruments (like we needed reminding). A challenging and brilliant listen that grows on you.
I'm not even going to try to put Animals, Dark Side and Wish in order. What's the point? But this is the one I play the most.
One of the deepest albums I've ever heard. In a way, it's the complete opposite of The Wall, for it has basically three long tracks rather than a ton of shorter ones. It differs from Wish You You Here because it requires some research to fully understand the album. Just another one of the Floyd's many masterpieces.
