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 71.6/100, a mean average of 69.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 71.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.3.

This was an interesting concept for a record, but they really went for it. I think the result is the best covers album ever.

I believe the "Labour of Love" albums are albums that consist entirely of covers. I think this is the best, but "Labour of Love II: is also worthy. On multiple occasions, UB40 took Motown hits and then turned them into great reggae cover versions.

This is their best album I love the way 'Please don't make me cry' comes in off the tail end of 'Keep On Moving' all covers but great versions 'Many Rivers To Cross'.

Forget "Wine". Check out "Please dont make me cry, Sweet sensation and guilty". Real emotion and this band at its best.
