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)

Personally, I think this is the best Aphex Twin album. The length of drukQs is actually a positive, it gives time for each track to breathe. There's also opportunity for diversity, in which department he does not fail to deliver. You get the peaceful, classical side of Aphex Twin, and then you also get the unstable, driven side.
Not his tightest release to date, but the heights are so high that you have to applaud him for being this ambitious.
Very personal and experimental triumph. My favorite Aphex Twin album and one of my very favorite albums ever. Contains two of his most beautiful pieces.
Not in my wheel house, highly rated though
If Drukqs was trimmed down a bit, it would be up there with his best works, but it's weighed down a bit by filler.
I don't think I'll ever listen to the complete album again. But still, is one of the most interesting albums I've ever listen to.
Tu prends contrôle de la boîte à rythme.
For whatever reason, this is one of the most emotionally resonant albums I've heard. Even the most loud erratic tracks have a calm, serene core. There's a beautiful melancholia to this album.

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 :(
