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 69.7/100, a mean average of 67.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 67.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 10.5.

The influence on this record is clear from the beginning, as Farrar sings about "the words of Woody Guthrie ringing in my head."

Jay Farrar and Son Volt return after a long hiatus. Critics were very happy with this record, and the consensus was it was the best thing the band produced since their acclaimed debut in 1995. It still remains a top record in the band's catalog. Strong and cohesive, it pleases from beginning to end and hardly slows down to obey the speed limit in tiny Midwest towns that is the essence of this record.

Track Pick: "Bandages and Scars"
