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 72.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 71.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 9.5.

A couple great songs and a lot of standard issue for the day filler. Worth having . . . barely.

Nostalgia, 80's synth is my music, I had a clock radio that I listened to Radio Luxembourg on late into the night, fading in and out, and What Is Love was regularly played....in a way I wish that was it, this hasn't aged as well as I'd hoped, although Pearl In The Shell, What Is Love (prefer the single version) and New Song are still top tracks.
