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)

Taking everything Tame Impala did on Lonerism but with more pop sensibility in the sojg writing.
For me it is Tame Impala’s best album, bold, infectious and just downright fun!
A very solid album. Feels a little repetitive with the synth, but otherwise will definitely consider this a classic modern day psychedelic album
First song is good but very samey afterwards
If you like repetitive synth loops, if you like repetitive lyrical phrases, if you suffer from insomnia, this may be the perfect record for you.
An artist with a unique style who seems to have found his sound on this project. It is very consistent in this regard as all songs follow in the same template with the synth lead tracks that all sound very heavy and like a modern reincarnation of prog music. He makes his music stand out and creates some fantastic songs in the process. A few of the highlights for me are Let It Happen, Eventually and The Less I Know The Better. The melodies on this song are genius and they always pull me back to this album. However, there are a few weaker tracks and a few songs that could probably have been left off the release. Songs like Past Life, Reality In Motion and Gossip are a few example of this. Without these songs the album is a better release. Overall, some fantastic moments of a unique modern prog rock blend that is held back by run time and weaker cuts.
* Favorite tracks: Let It Happen, The Moment, Eventually, The Less I Know the Better, ‘Cause I’m A Man, New Person, Same Old Mistakes
* Least favorite tracks: Past Life (if I had to pick one)
* Perfect integration of modern pop into neo-psychedelic music
* Synthesizer work really shines through at moments
* Very nostalgic, romantic album for me
So in 2010, I went through my hippie music phase of the 1960s music and by that point in August, I wanted to find modern day psychedelic music. So I came across Innerspeaker and it wasn't mind blowing but I knew that if this was Kevin's first album, that he would make a better album in the future. I predicted this in August of 2010. I knew he blew up later in the mid 2010s but I didn't really listen to him in 2015 when I should have because I was a hiphophead. So when I basically grew out of hip hop and I come back to this album in 2022, this fucking album blew me away. The psychedelic pop melodies he came up with were very artistic and creative. If I had 20 albums to choose from that were my deserted island albums with nothing else to listen to, I would choose Currents no doubt as one of them. I didn't know how good Kevin got until almost 12 years later. I mean damn, his music got good. Show support and buy it, don't just stream it
My least favourite Tame Impala album so far, but still good and well worth a listen. The Less I Know The Better is exceptional, probably his best work. Let It Happen, The Moment and Reality In Motion are also highlights. Really didn't like Past Life though.
