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 has a Bayesian average rating of 71.9/100, a mean average of 70.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 71.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.4.

Brilliant album jam packed full of fun quirky pop rock tunes. Loved it when it came out and every track still sounds great now
This album is stupid fun
It kind of reminds me of earlier Arctic Monkeys, especially since they started in the same year. I don’t think it succeeds to the same level Arctic Monkeys does, but it’s still solid music. Nothing special, just good.
Tons of fun!
Absolute turd of an album ... nothing of merit here.
Favorite Tracks: Henrietta, Ole Black N' Blue Eyes & Whistle for the Choir
A fantastic party album. The Fratelli's reputation seriously nose dived after this record, but that shouldn't take away the sense of enormous fun to be had here. Great stuff.
Definitely their best album
I agree IN PART with Paladisiac's comment. What you say is true BUT they managed to write an album full of cool songs, not masterpieces, note, but NICE songs. And Chelsea Dagger, Henrietta and Flathead and probably some others were all used for some spots meaning that it works. I don't completely like it, I mean, each song is in its way likeable, but IMO, it doesn't represent an "indie" album in its original sense, just like last Arctic Monkeys album.
@drakonium ....that was a pretty bad mistake. XD
