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 mean average rating of 83.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 84.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.2.

La genialidad de Davis hecha Album!! Es mi album favorito de Miles Davis, aunque estoy absolutamente de acuerdo que es un poco difícil de digerir!! Si puede busque un buen vino o cerveza, fume algo de cannabis, coloque este disco y aprecie como es la vida con Miles Davis psicodelico de Fondo!! Un placer este disco!!
Best jazz album I've ever heard. Seriously mindblown. The title track and Miles Runs The Voodoo Down are both masterpieces.
Clearly a groundbreaking album, and full of wonderful experimentation and innovation, but sometimes very random, or outbursts placed just for shock value. Great album, but overrated overall as Miles produced better fusion both before and after.
Fantastic album! If there is such a thing as progressive jazz then this is it! The Electric Ladyland of the Miles Davis collection. The Dark Side of the Moon, the Sgt Pepper, the Selling England by the Pound, the Close to the Edge, the Moving Pictures. OK, I'll stop now, you catch my drift.
This album is a jewel, a killing, an absolute masterpiece, an extremely important record for me, and one of the most essential, major records in the history of music, and, in particular, in jazz. "Bitches Brew", this Brouet of Sluts, is an album simply hypnotic, essential, grandiose, an album absolutely unbeatable, as well at Miles (except "Kind Of Blue" which is the best album of all time) that among the other jazzmen. An album that will sell by thousands of copies, and will be variously welcomed: purists will say that this is not true jazz, and young people will appreciate this mix of cultures making them discover a new way to listen to rock. On arrival, a perfect record, huge, monstrous, grrrreat.
Best track: "Pharaoh's Dance"
I wish I was qualified to do an in-depth review about this album but, unfortunately, I don't know much about what makes up a Jazz album. It's a lot more methodical and electric guitar-centric than Davis' previous work that I've heard. It sounds like a more chaotic In a Silent Way. I particularly enjoyed Sanctuary.
Like nothing I've ever heard before, but I say that with a lot of Miles Davis' records. Pure genius and it must've been a trip to have worked on this album.
I love the progressive dark electric sound to this album but I feel the first 2 tracks are really dragged out too long and I struggle to sit through it all in one cool. Personally, I prefer In A Silent Way however, I'll admit that this is more important and groundbreaking album.
Peak electric Miles. Only one that comes close is Jack Johnson
Sure beats what Pink Floyd was doing at the time...
