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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 83.9/100, a mean average of 82.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.5.

A tough album to comprehend and envision.
The distortion eventually becomes overdone, but this is a damn good mix of guitars, drums, and in your face vocals. This is the album people had in mind when they used to call Nirvana a punk band.
Teenage Riot is such a slamming song.
So many 10/10 tracks on this beauty. The first time I heard Silver Rocket it blew my mind. Then to be followed up by The Sprawl's prolonged outro... All I have to compare this to is MBV's You Made Me Realize followed by Slow. That total switch from chaos to serenity. Total Trash stands out as possibly the best single track, but that's such a hard judgement call given the quality of most of these songs. I need 3 years to process this album, hey.
This comment is beneath your viewing threshold.
Teen Age Riot might be my favorite song ever
I slightly prefer Goo, but I gotta say this is one of my favorite album covers.
I was raised on Goo and even that album was tangential to my primary listening interests in 7th-10th grade. Can't seem to get into the other albums.
Great album. A bit overrated, I think I like Sister and Washing Machine better. Best song is Silver Rocket
This must be among the best albums I've ever heard. an album lineup making you bloated with some of the best noise rock music ever made. You get introduced to this rebellious artpiece with its most familiar song, Teen age riot. From the drop of that song, you're thrown into a ground breaking chaos which knows no instrumental bounds. The Songs have the most impressive sonic narratives bringing together beautiful guitar tones and sudden breakdowns amongst the best in rock. Then this tracklist of ever creative, rebellious songs tops of with the trilogy. After this one of a kind musical journey, I believe the drop of hyperstation (the second part of the trilogy) to be perhaps the best moment in rock music history. This album is influential, groundbreaking, a flawless listen and cannot have enough good things said about it. If you are on this site and haven't heard it yet, what are you doing with your life?

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 :(
