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)

The best The Doors album
One of my favourite albums ever, it takes longer to get into than the first album, but this feels a calmer and more thoughtful, songs like 'Love Her Madly', 'LA Woman' and 'Riders On The Storm' are obvious greats, but 'L'America', 'Hyacinth House' and 'The WASP' have really grown on me. Overall, a must listen, but expect to try it a few times before you really love it.
The Changeling - 87
Love Her Madly - 89
Been Down So Long - 81
Cars Hiss By My Window - 80
La Woman - 89
Lamerica - 78
Hyacinth House - 81
Crawling King Snake - 79
The Wasp - 83
Riders On The Storm - 100 (My Favorite Music)
Overall - 84.70
The big three - Love Her Madly, LA Woman, Riders In The Storm takes this album from good to almost great.
A couple of good tracks and then just some derivative blues. Jim Morrison sings like he has already checked out.
Their best output since debut, really enjoyable album and their sound changed in the 70s what we could see at Morrisson Hotel, but here it comes fully changed. Even tough there are some mediocre tracks, the vast majority is well crafted and Riders On The Storm is all-time great.
I dig this album because of the bluesy touches on many tracks.
The eerie Riders is astounding, moody and cool.
I think this is their best album.
Title track being the cream of the crop of this album. Not as strong an album as some of their others but still good. Couple of fillers but L'America & Hyacinth House are hidden gems that grow on me
