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 9% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.8/100, a mean average of 75.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.3.

Probably my favourite electronic album ever. There is some great stuff on this - my favourites are Where Do I Begin, Lost In The K-Hole and Block Rockin' Beats. There's a bit of a lull in the middle with It Doesn't Matter, Don't Stop The Rock and Get Up On It Like This though. It suffers from the main criticism I have of albums of this genre, it's a bit too long for me, could definitely be cut down. Still a great album though.
best chems album and the album of 1997 for me
Not my favorite Chem's album but it is one that has grown on me. Some pure classics on it, (Setting Sun, The Private Psychedelic Reel). Pretty consistent right through. Only a couple of tracks I'd put in a filler type category.
Fav. Tracks: Block Rockin' Beats, Elektrobank, Setting Sun, Where Do I Begin, The Private Psychedelic Reel.
Favorite Tracks:Block Rockin' Beats, Elektrobank, Where Do I Begin?
"Dig Your Own Hole" is a masterpiece. Why ? The answer in 10 points:
1) This is the best big beat album ever made. We have never heard such a powerful mix of electro-hip-hop-rock.
2) You can dance without stopping on the first 8 tracks.
3) My body temperature rises to 39 ° when I hear the intro of "Electrobank".
4) "It Does not Matter" is the best tribute to Daft Punk.
5) It's a real electro record. Not a pop album, like the excellent "Surrender", released 2 years later.
6) You can also choose to listen to it sitting on your rockingchair.
7) This is a real album designed in its entirety.
8) The last two songs are more psyche things, in a 1967 mode.
9) Noel Gallagher participates in a song.
10) This album is just perfect.
Best track: "Setting Sun"
It's not a bad album, but there is no way I can like it. Setting Sun and the last track are the only tracks I would listen to.
La genialata dei due "fratelli" chimici sta nel far suonare un disco techno come se fosse un disco rock: nella sostanza ma pure un po' nella forma ( vedi campionamenti di Beatles e presenza degli Oasis )...
Probably my favourite Chemical Brothers album. It does seem to be their most consistent.
This is great stuff, pretty underrated on BEA, especially looking at the track scores.

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 :(
