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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 80.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 81.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.3.

Very good debut & their best album.
One of the great debuts in rock history.
An incredible debut album by a pioneering new wave American band! R.I.P. Ric Ocasek who passed away today. I'm so glad they were inducted into the RRHOF last year.
Favorite Tracks:My Best Friend's Girl, Bye Bye Love
Groundbreaking album, opens for half of the new music coming in the 80s, almost all songs are great, new wave explosion
When your first album sounds like it could be a Greatest Hits album, you know you did something right. "In Touch With Your World" is the oddball of the album, but still a good song. That and "All Mixed Up" are the requisite slow songs amongst a party synth rock album. The Cars set the bar high with their debut album and although they still had a lot of other good songs, were never able to match this near perfection.
There's a reason this is still a radio staple. Timeless, uncomplicated rock.
Soooo great!! This is basically a greatest hits album.
A good time!
An incredible debut album.
