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)

Was very disappointed by this album. I like some of QotSA's earlier material, but it is clear to me that by 2013 this genre of rock has become stale. The lyrics feel incredibly lazy, and the production has sucked the life out of an otherwise lively band.
Not typically a fan of hard rock, but QoTSA have put a lot of great production and art-rock tinge in this. I really enjoyed it! The harder moments weren't overdone and the balladry evened out the album.
An album of this caliber is few and far between. Every song a masterpiece in it's own right. The rock, the crooning, the melodies. One of the best albums ever made.
As far as rock albums from the 10's go, you will find very few better than this one.
My God Is The Sun
I Appear Missing
Keep Your Eyes Peeled
If I Had A Tail
I Sat By The Ocean
Some real masterpieces on this one, like 'I Appear Missing'. The Queens do what they're best at: immerse you in a slightly different world with every album, which prevents them of getting boring.
Favorite tracks: My God Is The Sun, I Appear Missing
One of the best alternative rock albums ever
There are no standout tracks which is strangely a compliment because the whole album is really consistent. My big knock is that the sound is completely recycled. To be clear for me that's totally not a deal breaker if the music is great, which it is, but it is _something_
But yes very good alternative rock: hooks are interesting and captivating and the guitars really drive the tracks well.
QOTSA's masterpiece: dark, heavy, epic - hard rock Arcade Fire
