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 83.0/100, a mean average of 82.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.3.

Some tracks I would gladly skip, but then there's Riders On The Storm!
The WASP is the underappreciated gem.
An absolute monster of an album.After about three listens you will love it.The interplay between Kreiger Manzarek and Densmore is stunning and Morrisons voice captures the tones of a tortured soul.
Undoubtedly the best Doors record for me - the debut doesn't even touch this one. The raw blues-y feeling of this record mixed with the great songwriting makes for an outstanding record.
I like this album, but i never understood how this is often considered as The Doors’ second best. For me, it’s their worst, but it’s still great.
A lot of great tracks in there ! But also some fillers. Not as cohesive and consistent as their debut and Strange Days.
Standouts: The Changeling, Love Her Madly, LA Woman, Riders on the Storms
Favorites: Love Her Madly, L.A. Woman, Riders on the Storm.
Just when the Doors were about to come back, Jim “died”. The is an amazing album but I can’t stand “The Wasp”. My favorites are The Changeling, Hyacinth House, L.A. Woman, Love Her Madly, and Cars Hiss By My Window. The Doors are under rated
Caí um pouco mais no blues, extraordinário!

I have always loved the LA Woman song, plus Love Her Madly and Riders on the Storm are excellent. Even the lesser songs like The Changeling are great.
