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 72.0/100, a mean average of 71.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 71.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.0.

Charli has labeled herself as "disney grunge", more on appearances than her sound though. The accompanying music is the big draw, of which i'd label "industrious house techno", The closest comparison i can think of is robyn. Robyn's a little more "tech-savvy" lyrically, but there really isn't a lot of difference. Charli should take that as a compliment; because like Robyn, when she nails a song, like "you're the one", she really nails it. But Charli has a ways to go yet to amass Robyn's consistency, but with a thoroughly-solid alt-dance album like this, she has a bright future.
Dang girl. After hearing "I Love It", I was rather reluctant to checking Charli out, but oh was I wrong.
I love this album!
Something about this is like impossible for me to dislike. It is so shimmering and intoxicating and fun. Some people seem to be uneasy about embracing it but this is like heaven, why are y'all being so tentative? :P
May be my favourite electropop next to Visions by Grimes (unless you count Fever Ray or Bjork as electropop, which I guess most do), but this was just my first listen, so I'm not sure, lol. Psh, potential, this girl has made a masterpiece! Maybe an exaggeration, but regardless, I enjoy the fuck out of this.
Like a lot of these misfit around-the-mainstream female pop stars of the year, this album has a lot going for it to make it consistiently intriguing, but it doesn't quite have the sustained vision to make it something really special. Alternates well between the sparkly and darker dance tracks, and it's much tougher (both sonically and lyrically) than most other albums of the like, but I don't know what she's really trying to say yet as a songwriter. Promising future though
I really do not see what's so speacial about her and why so many critics lauded her.
I’m just not seeing what is so special about this album. Sure, it has its moments here and there, there are a couple good songs on the album, but for the most part, this album is some fairly generic synthpop. Not a whole lot different from Marina And The Diamonds, for example. This album has gotten a fair bit of positivity and I’m just not seeing it. It’s not bad, but it’s not that great, it’s just mediocre. Charli XCX has a pretty good voice and the songs are, for the most part, somewhat catchy, but there was just nothing too terribly interesting about this album. The first three tracks are worth listening to and the rest of the album isn’t much to talk about, especially the track that features former-stripper-turned-rapper Brooke Candy, “Cloud Aura". Candy does not rap well, I’ll just leave it at that. Overall, a relatively disappointing album. There’s potential for some solid pop music from Charli XCX, but this isn’t it.
