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)

Fav. Tracks: Where The Streets Have No Name, I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, With Or Without You.
One of my best
This album does not fizzle out at the end.
One of my favorite albums of all time. Bought it the day it was released and have never tired of it. Saw the tour is support of the album in (I think) 1987 and to this day, it's the bets concert I've ever been to.
amazing, cohesive album with only a few weak spots
The Joshua Tree opens with an introduction of undeniable brilliance, and remains strong throughout, with few weak moments.
Great album but its not even the Best of 1987!
Favorite Tracks:Bullet The Blue Sky
Thi sis the album that got me really into U2. The opening Where The Streets to the daunting and emotional Mothers of the Disappeared, this is a perfect album.
