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 has a Bayesian average rating of 70.4/100, a mean average of 69.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 69.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.2.

The Ohio singer's follow-up to Somewhere Else. The songs are a little less rife with angst, but still very reflective on life and love. She struggles a little bit with the production on this record. Still decent. Love turns into lust and milk turns into clumps...love it.

Lydia goes through some growing pains as her sound (and production budget) gets bigger, as the more slicker production sometimes mutes the rawer potency of her presentation & songwriting rather than augmenting them. Her best moments still show the one-of-a-kind talent Loveless is, but Real doesn't always get the details right.
