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 platter is a nifty lil toe tapper. Just right to enjoy with a glass of mineral water (with honey) in a warm bath.
Metal is not a genre that I listen to and like a lot but I have to talk about "Dopethrone". In this album, Electric Wizard gives the best of their hate. See the speech of the trio: the world is bad, we are constantly threatened by a nuclear war, it is despair. A solution to that? The drugs, of course. A lot of drugs. A bit like an evil version of the Doors, Electric Wizard only thinks of delivering the Chtonian deities. Dopethrone is their masterpiece, classic of the genre, mixing the slowness and heaviness of an apocalyptic Doom and the Stoner (Hard groovy rock) as Black Sabbath could do. The guitar riffs are all exellent, it's the black magic of Electric Wizard. I will never get tired of hearing each riffs which are really anthological. This kind of record that tells you that nothing is worth it, in hate and bad mood.
Best track: "Funeralopolis"
Great, slow, ultra heavy and massively sludgy riffmonster music, but with almost intolerably overproccesed vocals. It's like taking the best of early Sabbath and putting Ozzy on a defective autotune.
It put hair on my balls
Heavy Heavy Heavy, best played in the car on 11 . Even if metals not your thing do check this out . It will rattle your bones and blow out the cobwebs
So nasty, so heavy, so slow, sooooooooo gooooood!!!!

I don't know why I haven't commented yet as this is a top 20 album ever for me. This is THE CLASSIC Doom Metal record. Absolutely perfect from start to finish with some of the best doom riffs ever put to record to date.
