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 71.8/100, a mean average of 71.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 71.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 8.2.

Ryan Adams seems to have slipped into "adult alternative" mode with the release of his last (solo) album "Easy Tiger". Even with the Cardinals in tow (and they were present on the last album anyway), "Cardinology" seems like a companion piece - a finely-picked short set of adult contemporary, radio-ready twangified-pop/rock that cares more about exposure and playing it safe than delving further into what i hope is still the creative mind of Ryan Adams. If you want to compare it to other Cardinals-related albums, this one is more subdued, evidenced by the choice of lead single "fix it" which has a great hook, but is down-tempo'd to allow for some E-Z-Boy-reclined toe-tappin'. I'd rather have the Ryan Adams attitude and ego -- there's more risk/reward. Hell, there's not even a "halloweenhead" on this one, forget about "firecracker" or "to be young (is to be sad)". The closest he can come is the fun-stones-riffing of "magick". Good album, but i expect MUCH more out of him.
