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 mean average rating of 74.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 74.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.1.

Lousy With Sylvianbriar comments
A great record
Having not heard every album they've released, I'd still wager this is their most accessibly work to date. Just a host of great tunes.
Amazing album. One of their best.
It took several listens to come to this conclusion, but this is Of Montreal's second-best album, after "Hissing Fauna". The hyperpersonal freak-out era is over and the band is making accessible music again, albeit with their own perverse sensibilities and a dash of '60s jangle pop.
After their more recent dark claustrophobic output, Lousy With Sylvianbriar is refreshingly straight forward and light. Moments reference at Donovan's 60 psychedelic folk with Barnes lyrical skills on full display. Best thing Of Montreal has done in years.
I really enjoyed listening to this album. Will go back and listen to Hissing Fauna again soon.
VERY nice release! 84/100 as it stands now. Not one awful song
Will need further reflection come December, but so far this is my favorite record of the year.
