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)

Favorite album by them after "Agaetis". "Glosoli" is one of the best songs these guys ever did, as well as "Hoppipolla". Check out the videos for them!
I have always been a big fan of Icelandic pop and alternative rock. Although the country is very small and sparsely populated, many artists have made their mark on the international scene, such as Björk or Sigur Rós. Sigur Rós is an Icelandic post-rock band that has released one of the best albums of all time: "Agaetis Byrjun". "Takk ..." (Thanks in Icelandic) is the 4th album of the group. It's an incredible album, the songs dream and Jónsi's voice is perfect. One of the best Sigur Rós albums.
Best track: "Glósóli"
Justifies it’s place in the top 250 (new entry)
I'm seventeen, and I've cried four times in the last five years that I can remember. Twice was over girlfriend stuff, once was when my dog died, and once was the first time I heard Glosoli.
Favoritas: Sæglópur, Hoppípolla
I feel that this album has even more magnificence within than Agaetis Byrjun, reaching the crescendos with greater impact. I rate Agaetis Byrjun slightly higher in my overall ranking though largely because it was just so revolutionary for me on its release. I can't think of a weak moment on this album. It is one of the most beautiful musical releases of all time.
Excellent record. Hoppipolla, is one of the great tracks of the 2000's. Brilliant.
First listen. I have no idea why it has taken me 15 years to listen to any other album other than Agaetis Byrjun.
This seemed more instrumental, but maybe I just wasn't as familiar with it as I am Agaetis Byrjun. Stellar musicianship as I'd expect. It didn't blow me away as much, but still was very good.
Favourite Sigur Rós album
no other artist than these can create what they do. great progression through this gem
