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 73.1/100, a mean average of 72.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.4.

One of my favourite singles bands, it's only relatively recently that I've really started listening to their albums. This is their punk-pop beginnings and its a superb start, although probably not one for the listener who likes their more melodic later offerings.
