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 is rated in the top 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 83.4/100, a mean average of 82.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.4.

Even if it's not my kind of music, I gotta say that Moonshake is great song and Bel Air sounds really good too.
experimental mostly instrumental progressive jazzy
As mudanças de ritmo são completamente alucinantes!
There aren't many things better than Suzuki-era Can. Wish they could have squeezed a few more out, but I'm happy with what they put out: 3 of the most lethal albums in history. Future Days is the slickest and and most focused of the 3
I think if I was granted one wish to sound write like one specific music group, I would choose Can. This kind of music is so easily derailed, but it never happens. In a word, genius.
Favourite track: "Moonshake"
Least-favourite track: "Spray"
My first CAN experience and it was an enjoyable one , title track "Future Days" is great as is "Bel Air" which takes up the entirety of side B . Absolutely blow's my mind this album was released in 1973 , so assured and mature beyond its 45 years ( gee I'm feeling old )
Definitely giving this one a tick & looking forward to next port of call in 1971's (!) 'Tago Mago'
"Inability is often the mother of restriction, and restriction is the great mother of inventive performance" - Holger Czukay
Not an everyday listen, but there's some genuinely interesting stuff here.
This album to me feels very similar to Talk Talks acclaimed albums. Slower and more ethereal (in comparison to earlier can releases at least), and albums that I find generally dull, though I can totally see why others might love them. Future Days just lacks the primal feel of Tago Mago and Ege Bamayasi.
