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 is quite a difficult record to get your head around but once it clicks you start to see how fantastic and genius this group were. The whole record is jazzy and progressive with Can creating a beautiful soundscape for the listener to be able to be sucked into. I always get completely lost in this record especially on Bel Air which is Can at its best as they seem to be so free and they express themselves brilliantly on this song. You then have Moonshake which is an instant classic from the first time you hear it and is the most accessible track on the release. Then there is Future Days which is phenomenal instrumentally and the vocals by Suzuki create a hazy and dreamy atmosphere that is so unique and fun to experience. However, I do think Spray is a dip in quality and is not on the level of the other three tracks. It doesn't take away that much from the experience on the whole but I could understand it if people argued it was skippable. Overall, this is an intelligent and complex record by Can that demonstrates the high level music they can create.
This is a very special album. Jazzy, soothing, creative. A masterpiece, if you ask me.
Not a fan
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"
