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 has a Bayesian average rating of 71.8/100, a mean average of 71.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 71.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.9.

Super underrated. This is like that Styx album that was supposed to be a rock opera, but executed well. Yes, Video Killed the Radio Star is the obvious standout track, but there's not really a bad song on here and the synthesizer stuff is really cool. Sad that this seemingly fell by the wayside and these guys got labelled one-hit wonders. They are, just stings a bit listening to this, because it's actually really good.
This album is pretty dope, its not perfect, and the songs are relatively simple pop, but its all well mixed and the electronic sounds are unique. It has harmonic motion and groove, unlike a lot of electronic music today, which is monotonous.
Not much after Video killed the radio star

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
