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)

To many Baez is a difficult singer to like, her piercing voice was almost too much.
Most of the songs were much of the same style and tone
never got it
Baez is an important figure in the American folk revival and the development of folk rock, so some awareness of her is important. This is her debut album, and works well enough to give good idea of her singing and her style. It is also widely regarded as her most significant album. The songs are traditional and are played and sung in a traditional style, though Baez adds a high soaring sweetness. What people liked is that she was young and female, and her voice pure like spring water. She became the poster face of the revival. Of social significance.
Linda voz e forma de cantar!

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 :(
