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 76.4/100, a mean average of 79.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.0.

John Moreland's Big Bad Luv follows the most straightforward of southern rock formulas: upbeat, swampy, blues-inflected rock interspersed with gorgeous folksy love songs. It works perfectly for Moreland because he has all the qualities of a performer needed to make this time-honored formula feel fresh: a smoky voice honed by years singing in punk rock bands, the guitar chops needed to effortlessly pull off some searing riffs, and most of all, a vulnerable storytelling style that feels absolutely authentic on every track. "Sallisaw Blue" is the most instantly likeable song here because of its incredible bluesy guitar licks, but for me the most memorable song here is "Lies I Chose to Believe," a devastating portrait of lost love, or unrequited love, that strikes at the deepest and most tender places in the heart.
