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 72.6/100, a mean average of 71.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 72.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.1.

very good pop album
Amazing production on this album, you would think it's too much, but this really works. One of the last classic albums of the old millennium.
Very good pop rock/pop/trip hop album. Best 10 songs average is 92,3/100 and the album can get very good 90/100. Best song is "Here with me" - full scoring. Followed by "Hunter" and "Thankyou" both 95/100 and next "Don't think" and "Slide" both 90/100. All other songs good 80-85/100. Favourite!
Such an amazing album
After all these years I still love this album to death. It's one of a kind, and absolutely deviates miles from the mainstream music, categorizing itself under the alternative rock/pop label. But that doesn't speak to the various genres on this record actually; it's rather colourful. It's emotional and sometimes very deep. Albeit the lyrics are mainly nothing but about love (which would make lots of people dismiss it as a casual pop album), there's nothing wrong with it, and the musical content delivers nutrition. At times, the complicated arrangement containing strings and piano among other instruments can be very grand.
I still hope Dido will release a record as stunning as this. However, this won't happen very soon if not never, considering the lengthy production cycle of each of her album release.
Amazing and flawless album.
The best album of the noughties, in my humble opinion. I bought this album on the strength of 2 hit singles, so I was not sure what to expect. However every single track is a gem-the production, partly by her brother, is simply outstanding. You need to listen to it on a decent hifi to fully appreciate it.
I first bought the regular album "No Angel" because of Dido's great pop-singles from "Life For Rent". It took me quite some time to realize that this album, her debut, was actually just as great - well greater!!
Fewer songs on this album have the immediate hit qualities that seem to be all over its successor, but every song seem to grow on you; and I have no doubts that this will become a classic. One of the very few albums with no unimportant tracks. There is something heavenly about Dido's breathy voice. I sometimes think of her a British counterpart of Suzanne Vega, though she actually does not sound like her, or like anyone else that I know of, for that matter. Her music combines the best elements of pop, folk, rock, techno and even hip-hop.
My favourites used to be "Here With Me", "Don't Think of Me", "Thank You" and "No Angel"; now they're all favourites.
Obviously I had to look out for this enchanced version of the album. I have to admit that I don't care very much for the extended versions of "Hunter", "Take My Hand" and "Thank You", but the Lukas Burton Mix of "Here With Me" is great and the new track "Christmas Day" is heartbreakingly outstanding. Like a Sandy Denny type folksong, only written in the 21st century. This track alone justifies the extra expenses for the deluxe version of the album "Thank You" Dido!
