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 16% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 74.8/100, a mean average of 75.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.3.

I'm a sucker for jangling pop and this album delivers in spades
Recorded in LA and Athens GA the album unsurprisingly features Hitchcock fans R.E.M's Peter Buck on guest guitar and Micheal Stipe guesting vocals on the track "She Does't Exist"
I really enjoyed this album
‘91:5 Indie Pop Eccentric Vies For The Big Leagues
Hitchcock vies for the Alt Rock mainstream with his most acessiblle record yet and … just misses. This is a good/great (solid B ) album that won’t disappoint but misses the eccentric oddball charms that makes Hitchcock ... well, Robyn Hitcock. That dose of madness that makes so many of his albums (like Globe of Frogs) Great/Essential. If there's no one else like you, don't try to be like anyone else! Recommended regardless. Solid Indie pop nuggets that really only the likes that my boy Robyn can deliver. Grade: B
