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 78.1/100, a mean average of 76.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.9.

Album of the year, 2011
Interesting one this. The songs are good and consistent right through. However, I can't put my finger on it but there's something lacking. I've listened to this many, many times trying to find what I must be missing. For me there's no popping WOW factor. Decent album but average. A good average though.
"Rock is dead"....when somebody tells me this sentence, my answer is "listen El Camino".
Who says you can't listent to really good Rock & Roll music in 21st century?
Little Black Submarines
Gold On The Ceiling
A real (good) mixed bag. Since most of the songs have a similar sound/structure, subjectivity comes into play a lot more than usual.
It's a fun album, but some songs are more memorable than others
It has some good hits in there but It isn't that good of an album.
"El camino" mi è piaciuto più degli altri dischi dei Black Keys che conosco per una questione di piccoli dettagli, come una vittoria al fotofinish. Qualche canzone un po' più bella della loro media ( "Sister" ad esempio ), l'esuberanza sempre velata di malinconia un po' più marcata; non trovo siano niente di speciale ma almeno apprezzabili, quello si.
A great album full of memorable songs.
Favorite Tracks: Little Black Submarines, Lonely Boy & Gold On the Ceiling
It goes downhill fast, but for all I care, it has some of the best Alt Rock tracks ever made. Love it.

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
