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 81.1/100, a mean average of 80.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.7.

This is as crazy and chaotic as it is beautiful. I rarely maintain as engaged in music through whole album as I was while first listen to this record. Risks that are taken here mostly pay off. I don't like vocal effects on Leave It Open, they're ruining otherwise great song for me. My favorites are: Suspended In Gaffa and Night Of The Swallow with honorable mentions to Pull Out The Pin and The Dreaming.
I'm totally OK with the fact that this album got savaged by fans and critics... although it caused KB some grief...it resulted in the "I'll show them!" album of all time.
Kate Bush is a genius, very good art rock herem it can take 2-3 hearings to process what is happening, 2nd best album from kate
You know how sometimes a person’s brain will block the memory of some traumatic event?
My ears acted similarly during the listening of this record.
One of the most challenging albums I've listened to. Becoming a great album, slowly.
Kate has always been an artist and walked her own way in her work. This is another feast of haunting songs with the touch of hip-hop. She must have influenced the likes of Tori Amos, Fiona Apple, and Lana del Rey.
quirky, irreverent keeps one off-balance throughout
I really like about half of Kate Bush's stuff, and this album I just don't get. I like Leave it Open and Night of The Swallow when I can get that far.
Bush descarrega muita raiva nesse álbum, mas de forma linda. Mãe de várias atuais!

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 :(
