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)

While I'm typically more drawn to the immediacy of 'Homogenic,' I believe that 'Vespertine' is Bjork's magnum opus.
Sonically, this album is nothing but ear-candy--the orchestral swells, choral vocals, and cryogenic beats paint such vivid landscapes, and I especially love all of the domestic micro-samples that are woven into the background.
Lyrically, Bjork bares her true soul--the explorations of intimacy, relationships, and self-discovery are so deeply personal that it almost makes me, the listener, feel intrusive. Earth-shaking, especially with headphones.
Saw Bjork at a festival many years ago and loved it. This is the first of her albums I've acquired to discover her catalog. Interesting musical compositions with sweeping grandiose and complete unique vocals. Taking a while to grow on me but is getting better with each listen.
A cada vez que eu ouço mais eu me perco nas canções! Incrível!
Revisiting after many years. Still just so far beyond what anyone else is even attempting nowadays.
Bjork is growing more and more on me - I really enjoyed this album and will delve more into it
One of the most beautiful albums of all time. It is just so still in it's beauty that it makes you stop and think about life. Bjork is on another level of artistry and creativity with her music and it shows on this album the most. Its unfortunate her discography trailed off until 2011 after this album.
Album Rating: 82.33
1.Hidden Place. 83
3.It's Not Up To You. 87
5.Pagan Poetry. 95
8.An Echo A Stain. 72
9.Sun In My Mouth. 73
11.Harm Of Will. 79
In my opinion this is at the top go beautiful albums, the voice of bjork with this electronica and art-pop music is just from another planet
Primera escuchada y mis primeros sentimientos es que no me ha parecido tan bestial en comparación a sus otros albums como Homogenic o Post, háganme el favor de disculparme antes de apedrearme, aunque eso no significa que el album esté mal, de hecho, es grandioso. Primero, tiene unas cuantas canciones guapísimas, sobre todo las primeras son las que más me han cautivado. Mis dos favoritas: It's Not Up to You y Hidden Place. La otra maravilla del album me parece Pagan Poetry. Ahora, mi problema es que hay unas 4 o 5 que sí las considero medio flojitas, como Frosti, que es un instrumental corto, entiendo que no debería ser muy duro con esta canción, pero aunque le ponga consideración no me termina de enamorar. Siguiendo, An Echo A Stain me pareció un poco olvidable en comparación al resto de las obras maestras del disco, y otras 2 que también están regular pero no me llegan a encantar tampoco son Sun in my Mouth, Heirloom y Harm of Will. Me veo revisando de nuevo este disco una y otra vez, pero por ahora no logro entender que sea mejor que Homogenic. Supongo que tendrá que crecer conmigo.
