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 has a Bayesian average rating of 72.0/100, a mean average of 71.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 72.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.2.

Very sad album with beautiful melodies
Sting's least accessible album is also his saddest in tone. It's extremely intimate and introverted.
An ode to his passing father and a way to grieve, Soul Cages is Sting at his least commercial. This isn't meant to be popular or have singles.
I want to love it. I have tried a few times I just can't get into it yet. I recognize the skill and it probably deserves a higher rating than I'm giving but I haven't taken to it yet.
Maybe you will
Written in the aftermath of his own fathers death. This is an album that tells the story about a boy (Billy) and the death of his father, a shipbuilder who is fatally injured at work and Billy's desire to bury his father at sea. It is a sad album but very thought provoking.
A highly intimate album in which Sting lets go a little the virtuoso playing to tell a story and give it the space it deserves. To be listened to attentively. This one is not a party album. it is to be taken in more as you would take in a great movie or book.

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 :(
