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 72.4/100, a mean average of 71.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 71.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.0.

Although Tests is the first full length release by the Microphones it's a terrible starting point for exploring their material, but fans will find a lot to like on this record. The album really lives up to its name with almost all songs having unconventional structures and it makes for a record that's magnificent as often as it's unbearable. Tracks like Pre-Amp and Feedback love are great and Oh Anna stands with the best of the band's work, but even as a fan of Danse Manatee I find Monsters almost completely unlistenable. A great listen for fans but newcomers should go straight to the Glow pt 2.

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 :(
