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 Blurred my Vision of music. Do not actively like it.
As with most Blur albums of this era, the singles are great but the rest of the album is very hard work. It's their 90s sound mixed in with a little bit of experimental stuff. Highlights are Coffee & TV, Tender, Battle and the brilliant No Distance Left To Run. I didn't like the rest of the album.
- Coffee & TV
Bem mais densos que outrora!
Great album! This was my first time listening through a Blur album and I am enjoying it a lot. Of what I understand, this is one of their more experimental records, and I had to listen to it a second time to really get it, which proved worth it. Highlight songs: Tender, 1992, Battle, Caramel, No Distance Left to Run. Lowlights: Bugman, Optigan 1.
The album that cemented their status and confirmed our suspicion that they are in a league of their own and the rest of the Britpop bands can't touch them.
My favourite album by Blur is Modern Life is Rubbish but 13 is a close second and is easily their most accomplished album.
This comment is beneath your viewing threshold.
Fav. Tracks: Tender, Coffee & TV, Mellow Song, Caramel.
A Thousand Leaves by Sonic Youth has some songs with some riffs that bear a striking resemblance with some riffs on this album. So I know where their sudden interest in punk came from. Other than that, there's enough on this album to enjoy that's original, 'Battle' is a personal favorite... of course what's not original can still be enjoyed, but if you want to find similar music, you know where to find it.

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 :(
