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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.4/100, a mean average of 77.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.3.

A decent outing from the early incarnation of The Mothers. Of their classics, this is one of the more easily digestible, making it a little bit less interesting to listen to. It's still chock-full of some great Zappa moments.
One of the most horrible album sleeves in all of my collection. The music however makes up for it. A real mix of styles, doo wop, free form jazz, rock with psychedelic tinges, classical interludes and the usual downright bizarre for good measure! 'Little House I Used to Live In' is top!
This is Zappa and the original Mothers' last album (recorded over the same period of Weasels Ripped My Flesh). This masterpiece is a long instrumental ride through the lands of fantasy that does not attempt a definitive system, but finds instead spontaneity and grace of true genius. The centerpiece of the album is the twenty-two minutes of 'Little House I Used to Live In' featuring some stunning violin playing from Don Sugarcane Harris. 'Burnt Weeny' is a tour de force of four great soloists (Harris, Preston, Underwood, Zappa) and the rhythm section (the dual battery and Tripp Black). This album is a stylistic masterpiece and ranks as one of Zappas's greatest achievements.
