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 71.7/100, a mean average of 70.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 71.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.7.

A fresh and sunny new effort from Band of Horses - perfect for working out in the garage to like I did on first listen !!
Light and refreshing, bringing a few new things to their signature (and at this point over-hashed) sound. It's a sound I greatly enjoy, though, so I'll forgive them for it. Coalinga leaves such an awful taste in the mouth I took off half a point - what could have been fun or even moving is just tacky. Leave the choir at home, or at the very least mix them authentically.
Not as immediate as s9me of their earlier albums but still a lovely record. Probably my album of the year so far

Things aren't so great right now, this world is in need of repair haha. Love Band of Horses, everything they put out is quite delightful. Contains some of their catchiest sing along singles in a while, Crutch and In Need Of Repair. Those videos are so weird I love them haha.
