Rating metrics: 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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 79.3/100, a mean average of 78.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.2.

Why is this album so influential? A lot of reasons. It certainly didn't invent electronic music, and it certainly didn't even popularize it. What it did do, in the same way that Silver Apples molded electronics with rock music, was produce a new genre of music which helped popularize electronica as we know it, it made it a genre of it's own accord, a genre which sounds as if it is without a master, without a similar sound and above all, which crow-barred it's way into clubs throughout the world. This album is the start of dance music, forget synth-pop or early electronics, this is still danceable and funky today, and that's it's beauty, it's timeless and absolutely fully formed sound is both appealing and terrifying in it's perfection.
