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 68.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 68.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 21.9.

'East' vs 'Circus Animals' ? which is Chisels best album ? It's an Australian pub debate with no clear winner , they are both great albums , personally I've always preferred the more accessible 'East' mainly because it was my first Chisels album and has always held a special place in my heart

Interestingly around the time 'Circus Animals' was released Cold Chisel were developing a strong following in Germany of all places and toured there in support but unfortunately they never quite hit it big and they returned to Australia to a hero's welcome

'Circus Animals' is clearly in the conversation for one of Australia's best albums of all time , it's not better than 'Back In Black' , 'Diesel and Dust' or 'Kick' but its around the mark
