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)

Que poder de mostrar força e emoção!
Back when Nu-Metal was a huge thing I always thought the Deftones were a cut above the KORNS of that era and looking back now history hasn’t been kind to that entire genre but Deftones and in particular this album stands shoulders tall
I remember buying ‘White Pony’ on CD sight unheard the year it came out purely on word of mouth and critical praise even though that Nu Metal sound wasn’t (to put it mildly) my thang. So yeah I simply hated it first up but slowly my frost thawed and on the back of the near perfect “side 2” came to realise and appreciate what all the fuss and love was all about. You see, what set Deftones apart was their ability to produce an entire album that from track 1 to the closer flowed cohesively and needed to be heard back to front unlike their contemporaries who were one trick pony’s (pun intended) with a couple of “hits” surrounded by fodder
‘White Pony’ is a tour de force that speaks as loud and clear today as it did 20 years ago. And yes I still have that CD
A must-listen for any metal fan. Digital Bath is superb, Passenger and Change not far behind. Also like Knife Prty. A very easy listen.
This album has quite a few stand out tracks that are really easy to enjoy. It is also extremely heavy at times and is teeming with energy. There are songs and moments that do feel unnecessary and a little bit like filler. I also find the instrumentation to be quite repetitive as well and I'm not a huge fan of the vocals on the record either. Despite this, there is moments when the guitar solos and drum work is immense and it shows glimpses of the quality of the group. Overall, this is a great album but I wouldn't say it is in contention to be amongst the greatest ever made.
Such a special album. Favs are "RX Queen" (highly underrated), "Digital Bath", "Passenger" and "Change" in that order.
- Digital Bath
- Change (In The House Of Flies)
- Pink Maggit
Glorious, whatever your opinion on nu metal. It's a shame Back To School was only on the re-release.
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
