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)

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.
Possibly will become my favourite from PF after Dark Side of the Moon: is very sophisticated, and hard for me to understand this kind of sophistication, but the more i listen, the more i love it.
This type of a concept album isn't really my cup of tea. All the tracks are decent, but overall the album is unmemorable.
So I decide to check this record out and I start with reading some background on it. Oh great, it’s another anti-capitalism manifesto! I’m already bored.
Then I start the album. The funny thing about Roger Waters is that for all the conceptual/prog-rock stuff, the dude could write a tight pop song. Pigs on a Wing has a great hook.
The rest of the album either faded into the background or grabbed my attention through a killer guitar solo or riff. Which actually kind of works. Call it a metaphor: the simple droning of a life, interrupted by the great moments we never forget.
I think that's the only album I have ever rated all songs 100/100
Based on the comments here, I need to spend more time with this record. It seems like I have missed quite a bit of nuance.
Tercer disco de los cuatro álbumes mágicos de Pink Floyd. Y por supuesto, tiene un nivel altísimo.
Dogs, Pigs y Sheeps son tres canciones muy épicas.

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
