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 23% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 74.5/100, a mean average of 75.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.9.

Super interesting to hear these tracks in their most basic form , this ones only for the mega fans though
In 1987 the band sent out a 17 track tape to various record companies including 4AD who picked them up. This tape became known as 'The Purple Tape' of which 8 of the songs would make up their debut album 'Come On Pilgrim'. The remaining 9 tracks were officially released in 2002 on this album. Several of the tracks were later re-recorded for Surfer Rosa and you also get a very early version of 'Here Comes Your Man' which finally appeared on Doolittle.
The original 17 track listing was as follows:
1. Levitate Me
2. The Holiday Song
3. I've Been Tired
4. Break My Body
5. Down To The Well
6. Rock A My Soul
7. I'm Amazed
8. Build High
9. In Heaven
11. Here Comes Your Man
14. Broken Face
15. Nimrod's Son
16. Isla De Encanta
17. Ed Is Dead

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 :(
