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)

Underrated and under-appreciated, I feel I have to stick up for this record a lot when faced with harsh criticism. It’s an album of two halves with the first focusing on irregular time signatures and abrasive production techniques that pay off the more time you spend with them. However it’s the second half where the album shines with effortless beauty with songs like “Lotus Flower” and “Codex” making the album a must listen.
This album is great. It is art. I think this album gets a lot of hate and it shouldn't. It's a well done album and it should be praised. It should be in the top 1,000 albums but it would be in my personal top 500 albums haha.
Very under-appreciated album (although to be fair it's still comfortably ranked in the top 500 on this site). I've always enjoyed this album. It's very different to all of their other work. Lotus Flower is one of my favourite Radiohead songs. I also enjoy Bloom and Give Up The Ghost. Codex would fit seamlessly on to Amnesiac/Kid A .
This album is over-hated in Radiohead's discography. It does what it aims to do so well, and though it's not my favorite Radiohead album, it's not a miss by any means.
Um pouco difícil de ouvir. Precisa ser escutado algumas vezes para entender..
A bit underwhelming. Better than Amnesiac, that's for sure.
The main drawback of this site is that mediocre albums can end up in the top 500 in this site if they have a popular artist's name attached to it (such as Radiohead's TKOL or The Beatles' With the Beatles). This album is far from being one of the best albums of all time and on a good day it's barely a listenable one. The only thing it's good for is putting you to sleep.
This feels longer than a Swans album.
Probably radiohead's most underrated album.

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 :(
