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)

Has several hugely iconic pop songs. Pretty good pop album overall, though outside those iconic songs the rest of the album is pretty mediocre.
A classic pop album that is both Michael Jackson's most consistent work and his greatest. Every song on here is infectious and catchy which is a testament to how brilliant Jackson was at finding an irresistible hook and chorus. I think that every song on here has been stuck in my head at some point during my life as you just can't help but sing them. This is the perfect form of pop music in my opinion as they do exactly what they are meant to do which is get stuck in your head so you can pass them on to other people therefore making the music popular. A lot of the time music like this can be relatively simple but for the most part on this record it is anything but that. There is loads to discover and explore on here with Jackson easily slipping into other genres such as rock, disco and funk through the use of his vocal as well as his ensemble. A great example of this is the use of Eddie Van Halen on the guitar solo of Beat It which elevates an already fantastic song to the next level. In this ever changing atmosphere of styles and genres we have the centrepiece of the record which is Jackson himself who gives a phenomenal vocal display that is up there with one of the best of all time. One other huge strength with this release is the production which still sounds great to this day and it makes the music sound so clean and blissful to listen to. Overall, this is a dynamic and hugely engaging listen that has one of the most consistent track lists of all time making it one of the best pop records ever released.
It has some of the most iconic pop tracks ever made (such as Billie Jean, Beat It and the title track) but for me it's not as consistent as Off the Wall
This album is definitely one of the pop's finest, but I find it just ok, apart from singles that are just amazing.
