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 is rated in the top 24% of all albums on This album has a Bayesian average rating of 74.2/100, a mean average of 75.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.2.

Oct19. This band is at the top of its game when such quality songs don't make albums. These were recorded during sessions for Once More 'Round the Sun and Emperor of Sand.
First song, 'North Side Star' is a corker, with mid-song jam sessions - well that's what it feels like. I was about to write that 'Blue Walsh' is a bit slow and bland, and then it takes off about the 3 1/2 minute mark. I loved 'Toe to Toes' from the first time I heard it. A cool acoustic intro, then awesome soaring lyrics on rumbling drums. The different guitar parts are awesome - I can only think this did not fit the theme to miss being on Emperor of Sand; it is a very good song.
Last song and title track is a long, slow, brooding affair that did not do a lot for me, though the solo near end is worth the wait. 3.5/5
