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 5% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.2/100, a mean average of 75.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.1.

I’ve never been the biggest Peppers guy so this has always been my favourite album in their catalogue, mainly because it’s mostly melodic Frusciante and Kiedis and nearly zero annoying over used Flea slap base
Probably the most melodic and tender RHCP album. Still has enough songs that have that funk and energy. The first 11 tracks are nearly perfect.
Inesquecível pra quem viveu experiências nos anos 00's.
Some of the most beautiful and delicate music the Chili Peppers have made is on this album.
First half much stronger than the second half. But so many good tracks. My second favourite Chilis album. The singles are great, but my favourites are Universally Speaking, Dosed and Venice Queen. Weakest tracks are Tear, On Mercury, Warm Tape.
A record I really wasn't looking forward to listening to again but it really surprised me and has grown on me a lot. The songs are all a lot of fun and all are experimental and kept me entertained even when the run time was dragging a bit. Furthermore, the album has some of the groups best big songs on it but also has some of their best deep cuts and is definitely worth listening to just to find those. The guitar work is the true star of the show though with some of the best instrumentation the band has released. However, the album is easily criticised by its elongated run time and large amount of filler songs. Also, the tempo seems a bit off on some tracks with them feeling a bit slow. Overall, an album I will look forward to coming back to as it is very enjoyable and has a lot of memorable moments to draw me back in.
The greatest album RHCP has ever released and an excellent and underrated masterpiece of an album.
I just love how mellow and experimental it is and it is definitely way better than Californication and Blood Sugar Sex Magik.
Some good songs. They could of cut about 6 songs off this album to make it much better. Way to long. Way to much filler
Probably the most consistent album Red Hot Chili Peppers has released. Some great tracks (By the Way, Can't Stop) and some that seem to barely have the will to exist (Dosed, Warm Tape). Still, By the Way is enjoyable enough for multiple listens.
