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 artists can have several thousand ratings)

Treat carefully, ALL their releases are addictive, if you dont like it or get it at first, turn it off, and try it again when you are in a compeltely different mood, works for me each time !
I must have a problem... oh well
Being scared shtless has never been so funny
Phychotherapy music from shy old-loonies to bloody "Buy or Die" freaks. We all weirdos love this stuff.
Pop music lacks this sort of adventurers. Stimulating, and very funny, which is elegant.
i feel despondently unqualified to be the first to comment on this band. but no one else has done it. i haven't heard even one tenth of their amazing output, and i daresay 98 out of 100 people have never heard of them much less taken the plunge and listened. but know this: take experimental avante garde electronica mixed with devil worship and wrap it in rock's most notorious case of mass anonymity, and you've got the residents. nobody knows their names, or what their faces look like. four eyeballs in tophats. top that.
