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)

highly rated but not by me
Its influence is undeniable, but there are multiple sections of this album that feel like full-on bad trip fodder.
I really wish I liked this more. The vibe is great, it feels haunted and spooky, but like a lot of psychedelic music it feels pretty aimless.
Interesting piece of art. First I expect something like Captain Beefheart but I was not disappointed it is a good Album i would say it is one step with Trout Mask Replica. You can really hear the voodoo influence it is inspired by jazz and psychedelic rock. I like it because the melodie are good and the voice of Dr John is outstanding.
Real voodoo vibe.
Brilliant voodoo blues. A superb record; atmospheric and gritty it's a perfect late night, lights out record. Brilliant.
This is a real voodoo album. At the time Rebennack really believed in that stuff.
I think "Dr. Dre" learned a lot from "Dr. John"!
Cool album! What does this remind me of?

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 :(
