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)

rather similar to music produced at the time does move in a different direction with new music, prog feel to it.
Fav. Tracks: Re-Make/Re-Model, Ladytron, Virginia Plain, Sea Breezes.
The first half of this album is excellent, but the rest doesn't quite reach the same level.
Top tracks: Virginia Plain, Re-Make/Re-Model, Ladytron
Solid debut, which in ‘72 must have sounded like rock n roll from Mars. Clearly influenced by Bowie and Zappa, but with their own very distinct sound.
Favorite Tracks:2HB, The Bob, Would You Believe?, Sea Breezes, Bitters End
Solid album that doesn't drag except a little at the end.
Quite a pleasant surprise from a generation older than I. Energetic. Unique. Enjoyable.
Definetly one of the top 5 DEBUT albums ever relised. If not the best. LOVE IT!
Interesting enough that I immediately listened to their next album.
For sure my favorite record of theirs. It's not to pop or new wave, and it's not to over produced. Much more raw than their later work.

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 :(
