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 68.8/100, a mean average of 68.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 68.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.2.

Boy did this one bore the crap out of me.
A couple of surprising good tracks. Ruby Dear is a standout.
Maybe it's because I love Talking Heads so much but I actually thought this was pretty decent. There are some awkward moments and moments that simply don't work but David Byrne's songwriting reaches new heights and the instrumentation is unique and fun as ever.
Liked it, but definitely for completists.
Of course it's no Remain In Light or Fear of Music, but it's certainly a good deal better than Little Creatures or True Stories. Doesn't deserve to be the lowest rated Talking Heads album here.
Rather disappointing for one of my top bands overall....
One nice song ---- N.B. flowers.
Wonderful lyrics that really get you thinking.
Here they attempt to recapture their old post-punk sound while at the same time remaining commercial. It didn't really work that well for them on either front.

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 :(
