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)

Incrível o poder criativo e a independência dela.
gooooooood pop album, cant wait to see the development for the next grimes albums
Despite what I might have said after my first couple of listens this is a great album with no weak tracks. Best enjoyed with headphones, as is all her work.
Fave songs: Genesis, Oblivion, Visiting Statue
Fav. Tracks: Infinite ♡ Without Fulfillment (Intro), Genesis, Be A Body (侘寂).
Hits that sweet spot, both an album that captures a very certain moment in musical time but still sounds just as incredibly crisp and engrossing nearly a decade later. Not as outright weird or foreboding as her previous mixtapes could get, but the sounds feeling much more pointed and interwoven work in the album's favor- the song's start to really evoke an actual purpose rather than just conjuring up a vague mood. She would continue to get better, but this album is a special little something on it's own right.
Beautifully engaging dreamy pop record. The almost entirety of the album is filled with pristine 9s and 10s before fizzling out a bit at the end. Easily a top album of the decade for me
Favorite tracks: Genesis, Oblivion, Vowels = Space and Time
I’ve put a lot of thought in Grimes’ music lately: What is her best album? Where do I place her sound on the genre spectrum? Is this really new or just a re-interpretation of ‘90s electronic music? Part of what makes it so difficult is that it is such new music; I think in hindsight I could answer these answers with more certainty, but one thing is for sure: Grimes deserves at least one 10/10.
Well, I’ve come to the conclusion (which will probably change over time) that it is this one, because it lies exactly in between the experimental sound of her 2010 releases and the straight up pop from Art Angels.
It’s really beautiful to see how this type of music has gotten such a large mainstream appeal, and I think that that is proof too of how incredible this album is: she immersed this purely experimental and electronic sound in a verse-chorus-verse jacket, and proved that all that you need to make accessible music is a heavy backbeat.
An amazing experimental album that pushes the boundaries with dream lade-den beats and ethereal echo vocals. It moves through pure darkness and pure light at various points in the album.
It could well be the case that my idea of Claire Boucher being a self-made pop star, whose look, sound and artwork originated in her Toronto bedroom, is a mere romantic fantasy and that she's just as manufactured as the rest of them (unlikely, but I have been surprised before), but regardless, this still sounds as original and innovative as it did back in 2012. Oblivion is, alongside Frank Ocean's Pyramids, my favourite song of the past decade, yet it surprises how neatly it fits among more leftfield and experimental stuff like Eight or Be A Body.
