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 83.2/100, a mean average of 82.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.1.

Bem sombrio e melancólico, mas sem perder a beleza.
Perfectly dark and brooding yet some how beautiful like a bleak day drizzling with rain
Dark, Disgusting, and raw. Should just be titled 'Songs of Hate' because even the love songs here are grounded in hate. Really great listen when you're in a f*** the world mood.
Best Tracks: Avalanche, Joan of Arc
whenever i drink i listen this album and cry...
The third classic album in a row from Leonard Cohen. Songs of love and hate, is a stunning record full of fantastic songs. Avalanche, is a brilliant opener, brooding and mysterious. Other standouts include, famous blue raincoat, and, joan of arc. Diamonds in the mine, is a fun singalong and, love calls you by your name, is another highlight, as is, dress rehearsal rag, and, last year's man, Oh what the hell, they're all amazing. With the exception of, I'm your man, Cohen's best albums are the first three, this being the last of them. He would continue to make great music, but these records are the reason why Leonard Cohen is spoken in the same breath as Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell. Excellent.
More hate than love, so that we can love it better...
A great album that has a much broader range of sounds and moods than his other folk albums.Diamonds in the Mine and When Love Calls You By Your Name are just brilliant.
Excellent 3rd album from Leonard Cohen, lyrically dazzling as you would expect, but it also has quite a rich sound despite the sparse instrumentation. Like this album, I think Cohen's voice is quite underrated.
Only 8 tracks is its only downfall, but it does contain two of his best in Last Years Man and Famous Blue Raincoat, but I get the feeling that in years to come a song like Joan Of Arc will have grown in stature.
