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 84.1/100, a mean average of 83.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.0.

God save the village green
A strong album, and my favourite from the Kinks. The album lacks a bit though, with no real "top songs" imo, and the latter half is a bit weak, though the last song is quite fun. Absolute worth a listen, probs top 100 of all time for me personally
Favs: Picture Book, Steam powered Trains, People take pictures
Not so favs: Phenomenal Cat, Wicked annabella
Through the years my opinion on this album has changed, now finally, I can say that this is one of my favorite albums ever.
Those are really against every conception of commercial. Under this point of view the Kinks hurted themselves as well... so much talent, why to waste only in singles? some better producted albums (and little bit more lovely characters) and would have been one of the most important bands ever.
Nothing sounds like this. I like it, although not because of it.
This is an album that is as British as they come but also so much fun to listen to. This album has never failed to lift my spirits as it is just so upbeat and happy. This is purposefully created by the group to put you into a state of bliss and they achieve this via the jingly instrumentation and brilliant choruses. It is tough not to be infected by tracks such as Picture Book, Animal Farm and the title track. The lyrics are brilliant and don't get the respect they deserve as well. However, this album does get over rated. It has its weak moments, such as the song about the cat, that bring the quality of the music down. There are also tracks that are just forgettable and when I look back through the track listing I wouldn't be able to tell you how some of those songs go despite countless listens to this album. It is also quite repetitive sonically and can be a bit boring by the end. Overall, if I wanted an album to cheer me up this would be one of my top choices but in terms of quality I don't think it is as good as what people say it is.
The best Kinks album, there are a lot of great tracks on here, but I am just not the biggest fan of this band.
Una de las grandes bandas de los 60.
Consiguen una serie de canciones pop muy divertidas.
El disco es muy sólido. Decae sobre todo en las última canciones, pero ni aún así sirve para bajarle tanto el promedio porque es un disco grandioso. The Kinks demostrando la faceta del rock más clásico. Mi canción favorita ha sido Picture Book, seguida de The Village Green Preservation Society.
I picture myself sat in a rocking chair on the porch of my house in the countryside appreciating this phenomenal album.
Most here are way more into than I am, so I will have to revisit it and come back to edit this comment.
