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)

Quanto mais se ouve melhor fica. Puta bom álbum crescente!
It only gets better and better
This album is great at making you feel isolated and lonely and really creates an atmosphere unlike any other record. The artist really allows the music to do the talking and relies on it to take you to this other place as it completely encapsulates you and draws you into these dark feelings. It is incredible how they do it and that is the strength of this album. There are many amazing tracks as well that truly demonstrate this dark feel such as Archangel, Untrue and Homeless being my favourites. It is also so multi-layered so there is new stuff to find with every listen. However, the album can feel a little slow at times and lacking substance in places. This does mean that some songs do drag and it does draw you from the record a little. On the whole, if you enjoy dark ambient music with sharp and unique hip hop beats then you have to listen to this record.
Dark, atmospheric genius. Still feels so mysterious after countless listens, with more and more layers being uncovered upon returns to the project. Especially recommend listening to at the early hours of the morning.
There is something really deep about this album, It is melacholic, atmospheric, kind of take you to another world. Something like a futuristic city.
Perfectly encapsulates the feeling of walking the city streets at night hearing the party happen right across from you in some underground nightclub... the beauty of loneliness
Good ass electronic music. “Dubstep”? As long as Public Enemy and Outkast are both “hip hop”, this is just “electronic music”. You can more easily praise an album that introduced a new style within a genre (can’t even call this a subgenre really, just a mix of trip hop and ambient) if that style is categorized as if it’s a genre. “Outkast and Dr. Dre really changed hip hop” sounds a lot less of a big deal than “Burial really defined the sound of dubstep”. The labels we give to music as “genres” often just serve the biases of the majority. Not that there is a problem with categorizing music, but you have to do it well.
I love the sample from "Lost Carol" on "Endorphin".
Mi ricorda la jungle di vent'anni fa ma non lo è: questa è più ipnotica, più da trance, più cupa anche. La prima "canzone" mi prende, per circa 10/15 minuti il disco mi piace, dopo cinquanta minuti è un po' pesante.

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 :(
