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 has a Bayesian average rating of 71.2/100, a mean average of 70.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 71.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 19.4.

I really, really like this album. Yes it does feel more Roger than Floyd. Yes Dave should have got a bit more solo time. Yes whisper and screaming goes on. The narrative links back to the Father & War backstory in The Wall. But despite all that it is still a cracking album and preferred to the post Roger Floyd - although I also really like them!
The whisper-soft vocals with distant yelling harmonies in the background or sudden burst into screaming loud vocals gets really tiring after a while, and most songs sound really similar to each other. There's not a whole lot of variety going on. Still, it's fairly enjoyable.
put ...when the tigers broke free... in alignment
I enjoy this a lot more than I should! A bit like the Wall in that it feels like a Waters solo album with the best supporting musicians possible, only more so.
Repeat listens and you love this album
One of the best Pink Floyd albuns...and one of the best ever
Very deep and mold-breaking.
I always enjoy this album more than I think I'm going to. Having said that, I feel it lacks the magical Floyd dust that they managed to sprinkle over most of their other releases. There are choice cuts, to be sure, but an awful lot of it dribbles by politely (ironic, given the themes). David Gilmour isn't given enough opportunity to show off his chops, and the songwriting is mostly average. It is saved by the highlights, and for that reason, isn't my least favourite Floyd album, but it's probably best that the band stopped functioning in the form they were in at this point, as their creative juices had stopped flowing as freely.
Oh fuck yes
Possibly Pink Floyd's most controversial album. Not because of the subject matter, particularly, but because (as is well documented) it represents little more than a Roger Waters solo album. This doesn't necessarily make it a bad thing, but compared to the rest of the band's output, it is lacking some magic. There are some highlights (see below), but overall it misses the creative input from the other members. It's a good album, but that's not really enough for the boys in Pink.
