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)

"We Are Sent Here By History" provides an interesting narrative. It tells a lose narrative of overcoming an oppressive force and enabling emotional relief. It tells this effectively though its swirling horns, stomping drums and occasional vocal interjection. I would never say i was fully enthralled by it but I was definitely interested.
A very hard listen. I didn't enjoy it as much as I hoped I would
One of my favorite jazz albums I've heard in the past few years. Every track is great, especially They Who Must Die, We Will Work (On Redefining Manhood), and 'Til The Freedom Comes Home. This is the perfect kind of album to listen to on a long drive.
