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)

Album of the year. 1970.
Not a great fan of BS but the first 4 tracks on this album are very good. It closes well too apart from the lyrics.
Cla Cla Cla.
Mama do ski
Surely the best album of 1970 and nothing comes close, this is probably the best heavy album ever as well. War Pigs is the best track but I also love Paranoid, Iron Man, Electric Funeral and Fairies Wear Boots, and the rest is great too. Not one bad track on here, perfect album 10/10.
What a tour de force in the rock world! This album seemingly came out of nowhere and dominated 1970.
Metal not my go to place - but hats off to this album - opening 4 tracks are just superb
Obra maestra. Los inicios del heavy metal están aquí y vaya como suenan... Canciones Hard Rock, psicodelia,... Y los riffs de Iommi, perfectos.
Iron Man, War pigs (vaya arranque de disco), Paranoid, Fairies wear boots,... No hay canción mala.
One of the defining albums of early heavy metal. There are no songs on here that I would list as all-time personal favorite tracks, but the whole thing is consistently strong from start to finish. Essential for any metal/hard rock fan, and recommended for any listener.
pretty great "heavy metal". Just great songs from start to finish
Voilà un album que je redécouvre. Je n'ai pas accroché du tout à la première écoute, mais alors pas du tout. Je suis retombé sur le vinyle il y a peut et, vraiment, je prends beaucoup de plaisir à l'écouter. Peut-être que mon oreilles n'était pas prête il y a quelques années.

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 :(
