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 73.6/100, a mean average of 73.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 11.0.

This is an under rated Split Enz album. I rate it on level par with True Colours. Great from start to finish

Split Enz again employed David Tickle for Waiata, although a newly famous Tickle was more difficult to work with this time around. It’s easy to dismiss Waiata as an inferior version of True Colours, and it is a case of slightly diminishing returns, but it’s still a solid Split Enz album.

Follow up to their breakthrough hit True Colours. Though rushed to production, I love this album. Not as polished and slick as TC, the songs and album as a whole have a different identity. Love One Step Ahead, Walking Through The Ruins, Ships, Iris. It is my second favorite SE album.
