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 71.7/100, a mean average of 71.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 71.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.6.

This album stands in the shadows of its predecessor Grand Hotel but definitely deserves its place in the Procol Harum legacy. Especially the first four tracks are top quality and the latter half is maybe not really top but as a whole I like it very much.

Perhaps overshadowed by it's sister album (the far superior 'Grand Hotel'), Exotic Birds and Fruit is one of the most underrated albums I've ever come across. The best songs on here are "Nothing but Truth", where Harum experiment with orchestral music a bit more and "As Strong As Sampson" Which has one of their best hooks ("Ain't no use in preachers preachin', if they don't know what their teachin'). Also noteworthy is "Monsieur R. Monde", a track written during the Shine on Brightly period so the lyrics give us a nice taste of early Harum's classic lyrical style.
