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)

Cuando el virtuosismo musical si va de la mano de buenas composiciones y de corazón. (Mezclas que no tiene Pavement)
Awesome album!Released when I was 17 and always brings back great memories as a teen. Gets played regularly on my devices.
Favorite Rush album !
100/100 it's already on my chart in the first 20
This was awesome. Best tracks: Tom Sawyer, YYZ.
The instrumentation here is simply incredible by master musicians
Best song (easily) is "Limelight"
Such a strange year, there are so many bizarre and unique albums in 1981, but this one is undoubtedly my favorite! Still get chills listening to "Red Barchetta!"
Great fun here! A lot like Magnum, but a bit more of everything. Better musical dress. Still mostly fun, and a forerunner to the light melodic heavy metal. And maybe 10% Led Zeppelin. But Rushs singer? Dont like very much...
-Prog-rock untied from it's lengthy experimentation-
The sounds of the 80's are audible here. it is produced tightly and makes Rush fresher than ever. The songs are shorter compared to the 70's epics. Rush squeezes everything in smaller turn on a dime progressions. Tom Swayer had enough hit sensibility.
YYZ is an absolute idiotic exercise in everything. Lifesons guitar chops, every time a new look at the same chords, are an anchoring for the madness Lee and Peart bring to the table. One of the greatest instrumentals ever.
The best Rush album.
