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)

Finally repressed, it's been so long. The first batch is sold out but the 2nd is on pre-order at younggodrecords dot com. I'd get that while it's available if you collect vinyl or cds and like Swans. Gira signs each one he ships out!
I heard they're working on the Feel Good Now repress next for vinyl and I check for it every other day at least. This line-up of Swans is among the best!
-In My Garden
-Our Love Lies
-Sex, God, Sex
-Blood And Honey
-Children Of God
This album creeps me out. Only listened to it twice, due to that. It's a seminal Swans album nevertheless.
Favorite tracks: New Mind, Children Of God
This is among the heaviest albums of all time.
And the closest thing to christian rock that I enjoy as much as my life.
Albums like Children of God are the true classics of the 80s. Brilliant album that definitely stands strong even at 28 years of age.
Dark and chaotic, yet still somehow beautiful. A true masterpiece.
Very dark. I like dark albums.
