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 has a mean average rating of 73.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 74.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 19.4.

The Commercial Album comments
Not suited to everyone's taste but then again it's not supposed to. Quirky, fun and highly satirical try it, you might like it.
This is definitely the Residents album to start with if you're new to the group. It's a parody of popular music, with 40 "commercial friendly" condensed one minute songs. The songs are all great due to unique arrangements and great sounding synthesizers. Even non-fans should check this one out...it's really an interesting and great listen.
