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 87.2/100, a mean average of 86.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 87.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.5.

Absolute classic. It has grown a lot on me, and only good songs here. Once in a lifetime is my personal favourite, but born under punches is also great, has a good reaggae-vibe to it
While it may not be my favourite album from the band (Fear of Music and Speaking in Tongues are above for me) it is hard not to appreciate how ambitious a project this is. The high points are absolutely ridiculous and it fits perfectly within a post-punk context with it's dark textures.
Not many bands ever have produced 4 such terrific albums on the bouce.
Album's a damn masterpiece, and "Listening Wind" is their greatest track...
original sound with strong writing, production and all
This album is definitely interesting! It fuses a bunch of different styles, sounds, and world musical instrumentation. It feels more like a complex jazz session than a complete record, but it's fun nonetheless.
A tour de force. African drums, polyrhythms, brass instrumentation, and vocals that alternate between spoken word and an exotic instrument.
If you are an adult and you can’t identify with Once In A Lifetime, please check your pulse at once. How did I get here, indeed.
The album is frenetic until it isn’t, with Listening Wind and The Overload winding the pace and mood down dramatically. They aren’t my favorite songs, by any means, but they give the album the sense of mirroring one’s life. We’re born, we race, we question, and then we slow the hell down.
No me convence. Creo que ha envejecido mal. Tampoco es el tipo de música con el que más disfruto.
Once in a lifetime es muy buen tema
Groovy, yet thoughtful.
Sounds like an awesome jam session with some pretty smart people
For me the number 1 album ever!
Born Under Punches the best TH Song ever

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 :(
