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 mean average rating of 69.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 70.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.2.

If there is a Nick Cave album that tends to be regarded as his weakest it's, nocturama. I don't understand why. I agree, it's not his best, but come on, it's Nick Cave, this is a guy who has never made a bad record, and, nocturama, is another fine LP. There are some great songs here, he wants you, being my favourite, with, wonderful life, bring it on, and, still in love, all excellent. If there is one complaint, it's the last track, baby's on fire. If it was four or five minutes long it would have been fine. As it is, it goes on for what feels like three months, although it is actually 15 minutes. Still, way too long. Aside from that, it's a good record.

Definitely the master's weakest moment, and lauded as such, but hey, it's still fun at times.

Favorite tracks: "Bring It On", "Babe I'm On Fire"
