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)
This album is rated in the top 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 83.6/100, a mean average of 82.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.4.

Very nice grooves and rhytms but some totally unnecesary noise too.
Overall weird listen, some strange noises here and there, very experimental. Not my kind of music but I gotta aplreciate that Halleluhwah is pretty good.
Muy psicodélico. Suena bien pero se me hace un poco pesado. Demasiado experimental para mi.
extended heavy best futuristic gets you moving. overall weird
A viagem que esse álbum proporciona é fantástica... Seus ecos reverberam em dezenas de álbuns posteriores.

A sonic journey. Krautrock's peak. What a dumb name for a genre.
This album is without a doubt a 5star album. One of the best albums I ever heard.
The best way to interpret it is to let go of yourself and let the music and story take you on the trip. If you can handle the fear in Aumgn and the insanity in Peking O, then you will gradually come back to normal life with Bring Me Coffe or Tea. But as it is stated in Paperhouse, "you just can't get back no more" to where you were before listening to this album.
One of the best krautrock/psychedelic records ever made.
The first half of the album is incredible. The drums are the best that I've ever heard and they combine with the bass to make a sound that you can't help but vibe with. Seriously, the drumming is without a doubt the best I've ever heard. The first four songs are trance-like because of it. The latter half of the record consists mostly of experimental music that, while interesting, isn't that appealing to me. "Augmn" and "Peking O" are ridiculous attempts at portraying madness and they do a fairly good job of doing so. I don't know if they needed to include them on the album but they certainly don't leave the listener bored. I prefer "Peking O' to "Augmn" because the one time the "bluhbluhbluhbluh" cut off my girlfriend as she was asking me what the hell I was listening to and it reminds me off it every time. The album ends with a return to sanity with "Bring Me Coffee or Tea". It's a nice gentle tune that works to soothe the eardrums after the sonic assault of the last half hour. Overall, the record is both with and without subtlety. There is a lot of dichotomy in various aspects of it. My favorite song is "Mushroom".
