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 5% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.0/100, a mean average of 76.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.9.

Great record from their psychedelic period. "Jugband Blues" is haunting
This isn't Syd Barrett Floyd. Only one song is.
Syd Barrett Floyd is so overlooked. Different from what was to come but it's still such great music. Trippy but in no way disjointed. This album is fantastic from start to finish. Love it
As far as I'm concerned, this is one of the greatest albums ever created, and Floyd's best. It blows my mind that Humans made this album. Like, it's just so alien sounding lol. It's bewildering.
A great psychedelic album and worth owning for the first three tracks alone. Futuristic and experimental for it's time and it still sounds out as a true classic today. The only track I don't like is Corporal Clegg.
Fav. Let there be more light
Least fav. À sauceŕfull of secrets
Favourite track: "Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun"
Least-liked track: "A Saucerful Of Secrets"
Not as strong as some other Pink Floyd pre-Dark Side efforts, but Syd Barrett's contribution, "Jugband Blues" is incredible. It's almost had more influence on 21st century Neo-Psychedelia and indie pop than the Beatles.
This, apparently, is Floyd chronicler Nick Mason's favourite of their albums. It's easy to see why. It hangs together in a way that their previous outing just failed to do. The psychedelia is tempered ever so slightly, and comes off as being a more complete item than on Piper. Even the meandering and lengthy title track (which can take some getting used to), stands above the likes of Interstellar Overdrive. Of course, it's all too easy to fall into the trap of judging Saucerful by comparing it to its predecessor. But by itself it stands up too. A mixture of serious rock tracks and trite pop thrown together with some upbeat tracks mixing the two. Plus a contender for drawn-out rock track of the decade. Is Syd Barrett's significant influence missed on this album? Not really. Roger Waters fills in nicely, and David Gilmour makes his presence felt too. Pink Floyd would improve on this album, but not by much.
A damn good album, albeit unbalanced.
