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 albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 79.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 80.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.6.

Coke... so much Coke.
An incredibly impressive experimental change of direction for an alternative metal band of its time. Several undeniable classics such as Passenger, Change (In the House of Flies), Pink Maggit and Digital Bath master the sense of eeriness and metal brilliance. Definitely the high point of Deftones' career.
Deft Tones best album, takes some getting into but rewarding on subsequent listens
Again, in a more metal friendly environment, this would be regarded as classic. Which it is
Some really good tracks
but, just too much filler
Koi No Yokan to me is the best Deftones Album but, this is 2nd
This comment is beneath your viewing threshold.
This album is probably the best mix of all of the members influences.
It's very difficult for me to break apart albums such as this one because nu-metal is not a genre that I'm familiar with. I find it hard to decipher between the songs that I'm hearing as being thorough and strongly executed ideas and what is filler/what are the weaker tracks.
But I think this album breaks that stereotype that I have. I can easily understand what's going on in this album and it accomplishes its goal, to say the least. This is really the only Deftones album that I can really say I like. While I do enjoy some of the ethereal moments on Diamond Eyes such as Sextape the most, the heavy moments (there are a lot of them) on this album are just as satisfying. Change (in the House of Flies) is a classic song.
Over the course of Deftones’ undeniably impressive career, they simply have yet to release a bad album. Everything they've released has something special about it, but White Pony is something different for the band and for music in general. Not only does White Pony prove to be Deftones’ landmark album, but a landmark album for the genre of alternative metal. It takes us on an astoundingly chilling and dark journey through atmospheric soundscapes and sinister lyrics. Deftones' really and thoughtfully strived for something completely unique, genuinely different and outstanding, reaching this destination to the greatest accomplishment.
Le rock un peu "rugeux" comme je l'adore (on se moque de la classification metal ? hard rock ? ..)
Feiticeira puis Digital Bath , on a pris du "lourd" et ca enchaine ...
