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)

Very good folk rock album, their best in the 60s. Fav track: Mrs. Robinson
Con este brillante álbum Simon y Garfunkel dejaron de ser un simple dúo de folk.
I actually prefer Simon solo but there is no question about the greatness of this album. Really good stuff.
Wonderful album. A studio triumph and a songwriting masterclass. The old people stuff stinks but I suppose Garfunkel has to contribute something.
magnificent musical presentation. cross-genre melding. political statement. harmonies. brilliant.
Best songs: America, Fakin' It, Mrs. Robinson, A Hazy Shade of Winter
Worst songs: Overs, Punky's Dilemma
A really great album overall. One of my personal favorites from S&G.
Nicely Done boys! Rating (80.42)
Bookends's brevity works in its favor as a majority of the tracks are largely uninteresting. The highlights (Save the Life of My Child, America, A Hazy Shade of Winter, and especially Mrs. Robinson), though, are monstrous peaks.
Great songwiriting, i like it very much. My favorite songs are America, Fakin' It and At the Zoo. Favorable.
not their best but still really great

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 :(
