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 9% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 76.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 76.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.2.

Good album, my first time listening to a The Weeknd album and I appreciated it.
These songs are gorgeously produced and this album is insanely listenable, but this man is a goddamned clown.
Here's a verse on the album that I may have made up, but still feels less outrageous than most of what is on this record.
I'm filled with so much sadness
And all these hoes are filled with as much of my dick as I am with sadness
And I should stop having sex, because it makes me sad
But with all these tears and all this pussy, I can't stop getting it wet
Some good tracks on here but its let down by the over-processed vocal sound
The dude is obviously talented and while I appreciate it being vulnerable it's cloyingly and unnecessarily biographical w/ some cringy lyrics about having sex in the studio and losing his religion every day. Yes it's very 80s although I appreciate that he's trying to define something of his own while wearing his influences on his sleeve. My feeling about him prior to this record is generally that he's fine but he has a ceiling. This doesn't change that general assessment, although the floor is very high as well on this record. He toes the line so much between being unique and derivative, best summed up as "identifiable". I think it's his best record and maybe it's enough impetus to get me to listen to his < 2015 albums.
the first half is pretty goo but from Faith onwward it's spectacular
He dabbles so much into '80s nostalgia that he almost rick-rolled us. The songs that don't sound like Tears For Fears B-sides sound like Trilogy B-sides. Why do so much artists see the start of the '20s as an incentive to go back to their roots? or is it just that they feel obliged to release something?
I'm really starting to get fed up with '80s nostalgia; it's high time for '90s nostalgia. Roll in the chronophobia and pessimistic escapism.
Weeknd fans are not gonna dislike this though, and even though I'm not a fan, I can't say I hate it.
Surprisingly good! And i've never really been a fan of The Weeknd before this, but this one juuuust hits the spot. Blinding Lights soars!
This is a beautiful album. For the first time in a while, I feel like Abel has found his rythym. Starboy was all over the place, and although there were some awesome tracks, the album didn’t feel like it flowed. There were different moods on each song, but there is something about After Hours that just seems perfect. Many people often joke that Abel makes the same-sounding songs, but I don’t see that on this album. They all feel different. Production is amazing and each song just goes perfect with one another. Heavy 80’s vibes. Elton John sampling on “scared to live” makes the song sound so great and emotional. Dazzling pop beats and instrumentals that just make you want to dance. Lyrics don’t disappoint, and I always love what Abel has to say and how he says it. Great synth on the interlude by Kevin Parker... no other person that fits a track on this album than the Tame Impala frontman. My favorite album of The Weeknd’s after house of balloons and I’m sure we will be talking about this for times to come.
