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 Bayesian average rating of 66.8/100, a mean average of 64.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 64.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.9.

Great album with the amazing track "Overcome" that came out around 9/11 and became a tribute. Rating (81.43)
V was my first introduction to Live as I thought Simple Creed and Deep Enough for You were energetic rockers and great singing.
Throw in Forever May not Be Long Enough and Overcome.
That is all the songs worth keeping from this overly long bland album. The singles don't show the true face of Live's sound which is more reflective and spiritual than this.
Throwing Copper, Secret Samadhi, and Birds to Pray to follow are better consistent albums.
This and other Live have a couple songs here and there worth keeping but overall underwhelming LP's taken as whole's
Very good album. Best 10 songs average is 89,2/100 and the album can get very good 90/100. Best songs are "Deep enough", "Transmit your love", "The ride", "Nobody knows", "Overcome" and "Hero of love" all 90/100. All other songs good 85/100, except "Ok?" is average.
Genre: Alternative Rock
Sounds diluted, if that makes sense. Lakcs the confidence of previous work.
Their first disappointing album. They're pretty tapped out at this point. The lyrics aren't inspired and their sound feels small and artificial. There are a couple good songs but yeah.
Live strips out a lot of their dominant spiritual themes from v leaving a simple, good alt-rock album, heavy on the rock (for them), with the greatest conundrum being "69". Highlights include "simple creed", "deep enough", "people like you", "forever may not be long enough" and "call me a fool". Ed was supposedly inspired by some nu-metal b|tches at the time, but i don't hear it in their music (thankfully) outside of the comparable lyrical simplicity. There's a grit in the guitars evident in the album cover.

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 :(
