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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 79.9/100, a mean average of 79.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.0.

Whoa, a great LP from Van the Man.. Listen Listen to The Lion!
Great album! Jackie Wilson is one of my favorites!
Great album. I think it's underrated. Basically up there with his best, which is very high praise.
A cross between Astral Weeks and Moondance, ultimately its not as good as either of those records but it comes close. There are some real gems here from the catchy Gypsy and Redwood Tree to the epic Listen To The Lion and Almost Independence Day.
Better than "Street Choir" and "Tupelo Honey", but not up to "Moondance" quality. Great album.
Not quite as catchy or soulful or consistent as his other albums of this era but still hits high points with Jackie Wilson and Listen to the Lion.
Wonderful record. The songwriting is on absolute top here.
The fourth of Van Morrison's epic albums. Sadly, he peaked at this point and never again approached these heights.
Fifth great album in a row continues a four year streak of genius. Would have fared better if the closing track had been omitted but everything else is top material and top performance.

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 :(
