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 is rated in the top 12% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 74.7/100, a mean average of 75.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 11.7.

Difficult to be sure what keeps me coming back to this.
Interesting, understated, underrated.
You can’t go wrong with a bit of Low, but sometimes that’s exactly how you feel by the end of an album. Ones and Sixes is perhaps more capable of doing that than any of their back catalogue, but only if you focus on the lyrics. The production is really neat, almost has a trip-hop vibe to it. My rating: 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 6 / 10.
Best track: The Innocents. Could have been written about a cult, if they existed any more. *cough* Scientology *cough*
This is one of my favourite albums of recent years. Very slow paced and sparse, but I guess that's the point. The kind of album you can drift into and appreciate the subtleties. The more urgent "lies" is a standout. Shame it's not more popular. Fans of beach house and Yo la Tengo's more mellow albums will probably like this too.
Haunting, epic, and reliably melancholic. Perfect for winter.
I think this is the best record Low have put out for at least a decade. I like all their back catalog, but Ones And Sixes really took me by surprise. Low are a pretty consistent band, but on this album they have regained the urgency that attracted me to their sound in the early 2000s.
Agreed, we should all form our own opinions.
if we are disregarding one user's opinion we should disregard everybody's opinion
Disregard what shaydndepriest says about mediocre. From start to finish, this is classic 2000s Low. Following the more stripped down "The Invisible Way", they've returned to the more expansive minimalism found on "Things We Lost in the Fire". More present than ever, Mimi Parker's voice helps Ones and Sixes stand apart from earlier records. If you're looking for another I Could Live In Hope, you came to the wrong place. Low isn't about doing the same thing twice.

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 :(
