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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.2/100, a mean average of 77.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.0.

The Gothic white album
Too many songs, the majority of the second half is unremarkable filler. But it contains their best song in my opinion, Just Like Heaven, which is an easy 100/100. How Beautiful You Are is also great, and I like Catch.
Kind of their White Album. All over the place, mostly brilliant, sometimes head-scratching.
Favorite Track: "How Beautiful You Are"
Least Favorite Track:"Like Cockatoos"
I'll admit an agree, in general this album is too long and there are too many songs on it which are simply not that good/not good enough.
But even though, I really like the cheerful vibe in some songs and Just Like Heaven really is a masterpiece.
And don't forget, their best work (Disintegration) was still too come when they released Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me!
At least five songs too long
Some of these songs are good, especially "Just Like Heaven" who is one of the best songs ever written, but the album itself don't stand any way near that same title.
B-side to singles of this album I liked more than album itself, but LP it great too.
Favourite: Just Like Heaven
Least: A Thousand Hours
It's easy to be daunted by this record. After all, it clocks in at nearly 75 minutes. However, there's no need to be put off, as there's not a weak song on the album. It showcases The Cure in their alternative rock albums period (in-between being a post-punk band, and before they went full-on goth), and, being The Cure, does it very well. Every track could make it onto a playlist - One More Time especially so. I don't know what my favourite Cure album is - I don't even know what my favourite late 80s Cure album is - but this is a contender, and, considering I have reservations about double albums, that's saying something.
For the first time in a Cure record there is incredibly weak songs (Catch, Hot hot hot...). And though I like the album being double and all, I often find myself dreaming of a single album Kiss me kiss me kiss me, which would look like this ;
1- The Kiss (6:16)
2- Torture (4:20)
3- If Only tonight we could sleep (4:54)
4- How Beautiful you are (5:15)
5- Just like heaven (3:34)
6- All I want (5:23)
7- One more time (4:33)
8- A thousand Hours (3:23)
9- Fight (4:28)
Total running time : 42 minutes
Now THAT would be a rock solid masterpiece !
