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 mean average rating of 73.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 74.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.5.

Wow, this record grows. After a lot of listens you really see the immensity being brought to the table. No other band uses upright bass to the effect these guys do—"Funky" is the best way to describe it, but it's the opposite of mindless. This is fused with electronics, providing a timeless quality. Obvious pick is I Miss The Girl, one of Soul Coughing's best tracks—but the whole album grooves down many avenues.

This was back in the days I used to listen to X-96 at work for a few hours every day. "Circles" was a song they played a few times a day for a while... everyone in the office got real sick of it, except for me, so since I was manning the radio, it got turned up every time it came on.
