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 72.2/100, a mean average of 71.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 72.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 10.2.

The tracks are zany and upbeat, and the sound is fresh in 2021, but it's just not for me.
Best album of 2021. PQ is never repeating themselves. And original, not copying Talking Heads.
Quite the mixed bag on this album and not all of it good. The singles “Walking at a Downtown Pace”, “Black Widow Spider” and “Homo Sapien” as well as closer “Pulcinella” stand out as excellent album highlights, whilst the remaining 7 tracks are a little underwhelming even though I give the band credit for trying something different musically. But the trouble is tracks such as “Trullo” and “Plant Life “ sound more like experimental B-Sides than fully fleshed out album pieces
Extremely boring album, I preferred Wide awake
