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 5% of all albums on This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.2/100, a mean average of 76.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.3.

One of the worst LP covers of a decent musician.

Maybe adding a live album is not supposed to be done? This is the only reason i can imagine why this rip-snorter of a rock'n'roll classic has never appeared before on this site.
