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)

There are some absolute funk classics on here which are mixed in with a few fairly average tracks making for a decent listen on the whole. The big hits really do infect you on this album and I find myself singing the tracks hours after the album is over. They somehow find a way to get stuck in my head and I mainly think it is due to the genius composition of the songs with the choruses being irresistible. The weaker tracks aren't bad but they are a significant dip in quality and I always seem to lose focus on the album when these songs come on. Overall, a very funky listen that is a lot of fun and is definitely worth a listen.
The political commentary and science fiction-themed lyrics combine with legendary music to create the iconic funk album.
Amazing funky album, the best in this genre as far as I heard.
Funk music at its best.
Classic funk record. Handcuffs is definitely under-rated here. Great record.
Supremely funky. I think the first song does meander a bit in the second half, but pretty much every second of this thing is absolutely fun.
funk funk funk funk with some added funk
Impossível ficar parado! Grande instrumental e maravilhoso groove.
While the funk world was slowly shortening their beats to create disco, this group showed old-fashioned funk is not at all done with its journeys.
Three all-time great funk tracks, no let-downs AND a personal favorite in Handcuffs.
