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 11% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.1/100, a mean average of 73.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 19.5.

Excelente álbum de Dire Straits en su cima.
One of the best live album
Best live album after pulse...underrated
Dire straits at its finest
One of the best live albums ever, if not the best. Still hugely underrated with a 74/100 and 1253th place? I mean come on. Knopfler is on fire on this one!
The best live album I have ever heard
Normally I prefer studio versions, but some of the songs here (e.g. Sultans of Swing and Telegraph Road) are so great that I never play the studio versions anymore. Mark Knopfler at his best!
One of the best live albums ever!!! Simply perfect!!
Sad that so few appreciate this album - simply the finest LIVE recording I've heard.
Mark Knopfler is, in my opinion, a true musical genius. His guitar-playing here is beyond remarkable.
i wish i could have been there. the live version of sultans of swing is so epic that it hurts.
