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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 90.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 91.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.1.

best progressive rock album ever!!!!
Brilliant album. This comes really to close to DSOTM.
Amazing album, perhaps the most technical of all time
This album is amazing every single song is perfect and flows incredibly well. Probably my 2nd favourite album 2nd only to Kid A
PART 8 ...funky...for me is the best part of Shine on...ahead of its time and even this time
Welcome to machine is incredible... more i listen more i like... f..k
They just completely abandoned rock 'n' roll on this album. I would rather catagorize them as jazz, because anyone looking for good rock should not be looking here. Of course it ain't really jazz either. So what is it? It has more to do with what electronic music artists were trying to achieve at that time; music that focuses on the sounds rather than anything else. And of course when your favorite guitar band (a rock band they ain't anymore) starts doing that... with guitars, it has to be praised to the heavens. The same thing happened some twenty years later with Radiohead: audiences who had never heard electronic music praised them as if they invented electronic music, while the real mastermind of their sound was a prick who liked to photoshop his face onto everything.
Prog rock is more about adapting than innovating. They're the vultures of music; eating the leftovers of other's hard work. Just add guitar, everyone will love it and you'll be praised for decades to come.
One of the best
One of the best album ever, it,s very technical and cold
