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)

Easily the best pop album of the year. All sorts of Prince and Bowie vibes. Great features, great themes, great storytelling. Instant hit.
While the second half of the album is definitely weaker than the first half, this is a fantastic record with unique sounds and compelling lyrics. The short film that goes along with it also adds a lot. I will admit, the first time I watched it I didn't realize there was more after the credits and thought the ending was super depressing. That would have been a good ending too, if pessimistic but I'm glad I rewatched and saw the happy ending :)
When she was more coy and ambiguous about her sexuality, Janelle Monáe was already producing some of the most exciting pop music, so I couldn’t really keep myself from building anticipation for this as her “coming out” album. The real revelation here is the way she sheds a lot of the sci-fi metaphors in favour of more direct modes of expression, working her inimitable voice through the sensual synths and harmonic backing vocals.
Not as good as The ArchAndroid, but still really good.
Favorites: Screwed, Make Me Feel, Americans
A Millennial Prince album singed by a woman
Beautiful vocals and catchy melodies
This is an improvement for Janelle!
There is so much self-love is this album that just makes you feel magical when you listen to It. Way ahead from much of what R&B is normally producing, Janelle Monáe takes the genre and mixes groovy tunes with a powerful message.
Top Tracks: "Crazy Classic Life", "Screwed", "Make Me Feel"
Ambitious and intellectual, and probably the most prescient and relevant album of 2018, even if it's not my favorite. Some great funky cuts that sound a lot like updated Prince songs.
Fantastically crafted and timely record. Not as good as ArchAndroid in my book, but in this album, you can hear Monae maturing; lyrics bathed in sexualized lyrics are interesting, especially at the same time she is making political commentary.
Funk, R&b, Electronic misturados em músicas orgânicas e potentes. Ela grita a mulher!
Good album, but not as good as the ArchAndroid.

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 :(
