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)

I see how influential it was and it has incredible highlights, but overall isn't very consistent
Scratch the "Sex Machine" 13-minute jam and we got ourselves a nearly perfect early funk record.
1969 might be the greatest year in music history and this album just adds to that claim.
great soul. different strokes
Hard to imagine a more accessible and entertaining album from Sly and company.
Best tracks: Stand, Everyday People
Worst tracks: Somebody's Watching You, You Can Make It If You Try
A really great, soulful and funky album. You could almost mistake it for a greatest hits release if you didn't know better.
Soul and funk meet psychedelia and it works! Superb album, production quality on the vinyl re-issue is excellent. Side two of the vinyl is the best of the album in my opinion. Great vocals through the whole album along with a plethora of unusual vocal effects including what sounds like an early vocoder but obviously isn't.
Feels more like a greatest hits album rather than a studio one. Fun and innovative, and "Everyday People" sounds as urgent today as it did 50 years ago.
Funk e psicodelia pura. Super dançante.
There are hints of the great work Sly would do but it's very unbalanced and the compositions lack some spice. Sometimes the melodies or changes sound a bit childish. The overall hippie vibe doesn't satisfy me also.
But great drummer and bass player.

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 :(
