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 69.2/100, a mean average of 68.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 68.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.4.

Probably the least interesting of their 80s work... but Lies is great.

I never got into that album much...sadly it was pretty much over for the Femmes with and after this album. They're trying more classic, mature approach that doesn't work very well. Songs are kinda dull... But it's the Femmes anyway, it can never be that much bad.
