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)

Very difficult, his last works.
2nd comment: listened to this album a lot more since and is now probably my favourite free jazz album and one of my favourite Coltrane albums.
Better than A Love Supreme but not as good as The Ascencion, so 95
I like the insane, frenzied sound of this album but I struggle to indulge in it for the full 40 minutes.
One of those John Coltrane albums that's either genius or nonsense, depending on what mood I'm in. It sometimes works for me, other times it just annoys and frustrates me. Am i trying to like it? Do I like it? Or do I hate it? I don't know, I really don't know.
Uno de los discos más bellos y poderosos que haya escuchado en mi vida. Me mueve profundamente en todo sentido...
No entiendo por qué nadie más ha comentado.
