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 68.5/100, a mean average of 67.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 68.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.6.

Very sublime and energetic album.
This is a low point for me with regards to Pearl jam. Love this band but this really has nothing to offer me. No stand out tracks. Just blah. Very disappointing
Favoritas: Sirens, Pendulum, Mind Your Manners, Sleeping By Myself, Future Days
Lightning Bolt sounds like a great band doing what they do in a solid way. I rank it 3rd tier Pearl Jam with Binaural and No Code
Its a solid play throughout. No classic songs.
The title track, Sirens, and Mind Your Manners stand out.
Everything else is of high quality that's a good listen if a fan of the band.
Can't help but feel like this band, now in their 50's are hitting the twighlight of their career after the excellent Avocado and Backspacer.
Lightning Bolt reminds you of why this band is so great and its a testament to the longevity of a band that is stayed together (apart from drummers) and stayed good for so long.
But this isn't must have Pearl Jam and I'm aftraid what is to come may never reach great heights again.
Very underrated, like all Pearl Jam records IMO (except Ten, that's a little overrated, just a lil bit).
Maybe better than vs., def better than Vitalogy & the others. Although I like all Pearl Jam albums, they're all in my top 200!
Standout Tracks: 1. Sirens, 2. Getaway, 3. Mind Your Manners, 4. Lightning Bolt
At first I thought it was better. With time it is less impressive. I still think it's good and that it features some beautiful tracks.
Good return for Pearl Jam. Not the more original album, but is still fresh and it rocks!
I am bounded to like more and more this album as I listen it... Okay, they did amazing masterpieces over the decades but this is not bad st All.. Sirens is a beautiful e fulfilling song!!
Love Pearl Jam. This is my least favorite of their albums. It has a few decent tunes, the rest is bland to me.
The first five tracks are fine and Pendulum and Yellow Moon are beauties that make the back end worthwhile. Okay, so this is a band past their prime but this is Pearl Jam we're talking about -- one of the best bands ever. And this latest is not their worst; still lots of gas left in this tank.
