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 73.4/100, a mean average of 70.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 19.5.

"God will/But I won't/God does/ But I don't/ And that's the difference between God and me"
What did he just say?
Did he really say that? Wow, I gotta play this, people gotta hear this guy...
Lyle Lovett is the self-titled debut record by the artist of the same name, released on MCA in 1986.
Call him Lucky Lyle. He was just another Kerrville folkie, studying journalism at A&M University with fellow "Aggie" Robert Earl Keen and participating in Nanci Griffith's studio albums with independent producer Jim Rooney.
But it was songwriter Guy Clark who helped Lyle get signed. Clark didn't know Lovett, but he passed Lovett's demo tape around to Nashville producers. That's how it landed in Tony Brown's hands and that's how Lovett landed a record deal with MCA and with Brown as producer.
Lovett's debut mostly plays it safe. It's probably the most accessible record of his career. Somehow he turns the goofy This Old Porch into a tender ballad. But there are signs of the style he would go on to explore on the track You Can't Resist It. Apparently this was successful with country radio at the time.
Overall, it's OK. It's not incredible enough for me to recommended. Check out his records Pontiac and Joshua Judges Ruth.
