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)

The guitar work on this record is simply outstanding and it elevates this album to new heights. Every song has a brilliant performance from Townshend on here and it makes for a very consistent listen. Backing this up is some fantastic drum work which is energetic and provides a backbone that allows the rest of the group to build off. Then there is the vocal which is amazing and Daltrey gives us some engaging and fun to explore lyrics that demand you to look into them. The concept and storyline works very well and feels very cohesive which allows us to see the artists vision clearly. The second half of the record is definitely superior to the first with it ending on one of the bands best ever songs in Love Reign O'er Me. The first half I do find to be a little slow and it does have some filler in places which is also true with side 2. Also, it is a very bloated release and I think it definitely could be cut down. Overall, a great concept album by the Who that deserves a lot of praise for its story and guitar performance which is phenomenal.
Another great album experience by The Who that feels like an awesome movie. It's hard to make a good follow-up to album such great as Who's Next but they managed to do that very well. Instrumentals here are just amazing with great voice singing over them, I think the greatest tracks from here are Quadrophenia, Doctor Jimmy and the excellent closer Love Reign O'er Me that is standing amongst greatest songs of all time.
No weak spots in this excellent album.
Esta me parece la mejor ópera rock de la historia, muy superior a la, para mí, pretenciosa Tommy.
Para mi el segundo mejor disco de los Who.
Mismo concepto que Tommy pero con un resultado mejor.
Love Reign O'er me es sencillamente impresionante
Quadrophenia is an excellent bunch of songs. Great flow. Much better than Tommy. Townshend is easily one of the greatest rhythm guitarists in history.
It's like they took the whole idea of Tommy, and improved upon it considerably
One of my favorite albums ever. Just absolutely flawless
I loved the song Love Reign Over Me
But the rest of the album was kinda blah
It does not measure up to Tommy

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 :(
