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 74.1/100, a mean average of 75.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 10.7.

Got here through my attachment to the sounds of Soul Asylum, and when I found out that Dan Murphy had branched out from that band to this one I had to give a listen. I am ecstatic that I did. The collective songwriting talents of the members works to excellent effect. I'm not a big fan of alt-country, but I am a fan of witty,clever lyrics so this is in my wheelhouse. I'll listen to more albums by these guys.

Jeff Tweedy, Dan Murphy, Gary Louris and Kraig Johnson's follow-up to the excellent Down By the Old Mainstream is just as excellent.

I discovered this at a listening booth in a record shop in Santa Monica while on vacation, at the time having never heard of Wilco, and not realizing the Jayhawks connection.
