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 73.2/100, a mean average of 71.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.5.

My mistake, the hallelujah chorus is on this album.

Not to my knowledge - as far as I'm aware the entry is correct, at least my version hasn't got that on it! High time it had a re-appraisal, history hasn't been too kind and hardly anyone's heard it... terrible shame!

Got a promo of this album from the Warner rep when it came out and we played it in the store all the time..when people came in the store, they looked up at the speakers and at each other like what in the hell were they hearing..funny...but'nowaxjim", wasn't there a version of Handel's Hallelujah chorus on this album?
