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 18% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 75.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 75.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 11.7.

From PaperVinnie 10/28/2017 03:40
Another Incredibly underrated album, Sonic Youth decided to relax, stretch their legs a bit and just quietly play some guitar. and on songs that don't do that, they'll have one of the following things that also goes extremely well for them: they'll have a kickass hard rock edge, a relaxed psychedelic melody, or a really cool jammy instrumental. In all aspects, this album rocks, but it is occasionally forgettable.

Favorite Tracks: Sunday, Wildflower Soul, Hoarfrost, Hits of Sunshine, The Ineffable Me

While a few of these tracks go for way too long, there is enough melodic and hypnotizing tracks to keep you enjoying it.

Favorite tracks: Contre le sexisme, Sunday, Female Mechanic Now on Duty, Hoarfrost, Hits of Sunshine, Karen Koltrane
