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 is a lot weaker than the groups two masterpieces but you can see the potential of a great band hidden amongst the songs. Tracks like Rhinoceros and I Am One prove this and are the closest we get to classic pumpkins. The album is pretty consistently frantic and energetic the whole way through as well. Other than that the record feels very bland and a bit of a mess. No other song really stands out and the instrumentation feels a bit weaker. It is too long as well and always drags for me. There is no pull to this album either and I never really feel like returning to it. Overall, quite a weak Pumpkins album that isn't really worth the listen.
Not as good as Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie, but a must-listen for any fan of rock and particularly grunge. My highlights are Daydream, I am One and Crush.
its has its moments
In regards to the bookend albums to the pumpkins' two masterpieces, Adore blows Gish out of the water.
the world was introduced to The Smashing Pumpkins with this album the turned the music world on its ear to pay attention to this movement of 90's rock
Decent album. Great start and end, but lacking a bit in the middle.
Favs: I Am One, Gish, Bury Me, Tristessa, Window Paine, Daydream
I take back what I said - Bury Me, Crush, Snail, & Tristessa are just as awesome as the first three songs... Window Paine and Suffer are just okay... Still liked it better when Billy had long hair.
Awesome beginning of their career. 8/10.
A pretty kickass album, not a bad song on here, yet it is not as memorable as the Pumpkin's later two albums. Still a great debut; the fast brash songs and the slower songs are all great together, great chemistry for an album.
Underrated album. Their earlier psychedelic period never got the full credit it deserved, this album just straight up rocks.

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 :(
