Rating metrics: 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 24% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 74.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 74.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 11.6.

Musically 'smoother' and more refined, but equally as experimental and original as their debut 'Silver Apples Of The Moon', Laika create a form of "organic" electronica that is, for example, more authentic sounding than the music produced by one of their contemporaries, the overrated Moby. Overall, live drums and percussion, together with guitars and samples dominate, resulting in a complexly-layered and polyrhythmic blend of beats and diverse analogue sounds. With 'Sounds Of The Satellites', Laika produced one of the most original and accomplished albums of the 1990s.
