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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.7/100, a mean average of 76.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.6.

A strong first half that is let down greatly by the slow and boring second half. To start with the positives you have some absolutely fantastic tracks at the start of the record. It starts off with a great song in Overcome and is then followed up by amazing tracks such as Black Steel and Hell Is Around The Corner. All of these songs have fantastic vocals and the beats on them are so intelligent and always get stuck in my head. The start of the record is just so relaxing and it flows so perfectly from song to song. It is a shame that this isn't maintained and you get the final 30 or so minutes of the record feeling extremely drawn out. The sound feels repetitive by this point and you are ready for the album to finish as I found myself constantly being distracted whilst listening. Overall, you can see the influence this record had but the quality just isn't consistent enough for this to be amongst the greats.
It does lag a bit in the second half, but Maxinquaye still offers a lot to the listener. Definitely check this out if you like Post-era Björk.
Fav. Tracks: Hell Is Round The Corner, Aftermath.
Favorite Tracks:Black Steel, Abbaon Fat Track, Brand New You're Retro
A great trip-hop album with vocals from Martina Topley-Bird that fit the bill completely and infuse the record with a shot of soul. Tricky's rapping works quite well too and his dark, gritty lyrics match the atmospheric production.
Spin-off dei Massive Attack ( dei quali comunque è sempre stato solo un collaboratore ), Tricky da solo ( da solo per modo di dire… ) fa assai bene, anche se la casa madre è un'altra cosa. Atmosfere plumbee, ritmi lenti ma a volte convulsi, ottima musica da club fumosi e quel blues per il nuovo millennio ( campionato da Isaac Hayes ) che è "Hell's around the corner".
This comment is beneath your viewing threshold.
Good record. Perfect for late night chilling out. Slightly overlong but still very good.
The first half is particularly great. While it's definitely not my favourite trip hop album, it clearly had a huge influence on Massive Attack's Mezzanine, and for that, I will always think highly of this debut album.
Boring closing tracks.
Favorite tracks: Overcome, Hell Is Round the Corner, Pumpkin, You Don’t

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 :(
