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)

Very disco, great collection of tunes and more influential than is recognised.
This is a disco album through and through released pretty closely to Jeff Lynne's Xanadu soundtrack. Either you like disco music on it's own merits or you don't-in fairness to the E.L.O. this isn't watered down pop-rock, this isn't "disco music for pretentious people who don't like disco music", it just is what it is. I happen to be a big fan of disco, as I think that Shine A Little Love and Last Train To London are two of the best songs that the band ever recorded. The ballads that make up the middle of each side are all pretty decent (Midnight Blue is the best of them IMO) but oddly enough Don't Bring Me Down is kind of a problem. It's a phenomenal song, but also it completely doesn't go with anything else on this album.
it felt sad when you listen to entire ELO discography, realize is one of the best bands ever and they are so underrated!!!
ELO goes full on disco/pop on this one, but they still make it work. There are some genuine classics on this album.
The ballads are love em or hate em, but Horace Wimp, Shine, and Don’t Bring Me Down are 3 absolute classics.
This comment is beneath your viewing threshold.
Favoritas: Need Her Love, Confusion, Don't Bring Me Down, Last Train To London
HORACE WIMP, THIS IS YOUR LIFE!

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 :(
