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)

Good album that I need to explore more.
Over is great, and I love the intro to Half Day Closing, but overall I didn't find the album that special.
With the exception of "Humming", which was really enjoyable, I can't say I get it.
Dark. Creepy. Hypnotic. Distant. Pretty much Portishead in a nutshell. Fitting that this is self titled, because it pretty much encapsulates what these musicians were going for. It is a bit long winded though, a lot of the songs seem to double the length of my complete attention span.
De los albumes de estudio de Portishead, elegería este, pero debo advertir que es un album denso, bastante denso, con un sonido oscuro, pero bello, suena sumamente actual a pesar de los años que han pasado desde que vio la luz (1997). Portishead tiene la gracia que no hay una banda que suena "similar" y eso los hace únicos. En este album vuelcan toda su impronta de Trip-Hop para deleitarnos con 11 canciones únicas en 50 minutos de genialidad sonora!
It's a testament to how great this band is if this is their "worst" album
One of the most haunting albums I've come across. There's really nothing I can think of that has this very specific sound. It's a dark and lovely trip.
This my first listen to this album - I've heard a handful of the songs already from their live NYC album, many of which I really like.
A dark and delicious successor to "Dummy", reminiscent of the music featured in David Lynch's films. Consistently great throughout.
Uno de esos álbumes que nunca te cansas de escuchar. De hecho, su hipnótico sonido crece más en ti cada vez que lo pones. Me rindo.
