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)

Jazzy and atmospheric. Very, very good album.
Fantastic album for sure but they honestly got better with each album. That's just me though.
Has its moments
Pretty, then dull.
Oh god, this gets better with each listen.
Glory BOX !. Any movie ending with that song could earn an Oscar.
A little bit overrated for me - I find the album a bit samey. Roads and Sour Times are great songs though, Glory Box is good too.
Masterpiece. I love this album so so much and would recommend it to everyone ! Definite magical moments throughout. The BEST
This record is sensational. One of the best parts for me is the vocal. It sounds so classy yet also modern and fresh at the same time and the delivery on some of the lyrics for the choruses are just stunning. Then you get to the beats, which are masterfully crafted and create this rich atmosphere which they maintain for the full run time. Furthermore, they also deliver huge songs which are real standout tracks such as Mysterons, Sour Times, Roads and Glory Box. This album is tough to fault but I do agree with the opinion that some tracks are a bit weaker and could be cut and that would put the album right among the greatest ever. Overall, this record blows me away and it really leads the line for the Trip Hop genre.
Buen disco para crear una atmósfera tranquila.
Je trouve cette album quasi parfait

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 :(
