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 has a Bayesian average rating of 70.9/100, a mean average of 68.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 70.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.7.

I cannot understand these so-called fun bands, they are simply not that fun!
Probably the least amazing of the early Bonzos. Not bad, but doesn't have the pizzazz of Gorilla or Granny's Greenhouse, or even Keynsham. Good to have for a complete collection, but otherwise sort of meh.
Gorillas is my favorite because it was the first album I heard from this very special band. However, this is probably their best -- "I'm the Urban Spaceman" (their only real hit), plus so many of their classic tracks but the best being the last two "Mr. Apollo" and my all time favorite "Canyons Of Your Mind". The latter has the distinction of having the best ever worst guitar solo...brilliant.

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 :(
