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 67.8/100, a mean average of 63.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 63.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 11.6.

It feels like GBV have been around for ever & that’s because they have! By my reckoning this is release number 38 ! . 38 sweet mother of god ! . Any way this album is ok , not good, not bad, just ok . The best moments begin with track 4 “ Steppenwolf Mausoleum “ and tracks 5 , 6 & 7. This album won’t be on my Best Of for 2017 but I’m super glad I checked it out.
