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)

Hobosapiens is a triumph, an amazing album that any fan of Cale or of experimental music should own. The first four tracks and the last four tracks are all brilliant, but my favourites are “Over Her Head” and “Things”.
Also, I love the nice little message hidden in the small print. Not all artists would care enough about the fans to hide that secret in there.

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 :(
