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 is rated in the top 9% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.1/100, a mean average of 75.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.5.

Such a surreal thing to listen to in 2023.. listening to him singing about dust covering everything almost 100 years ago is spooky. Really puts you back in time to a completely different era.

The start of the folk revival, but much more. A stylistic decision made by lack of alternatives, but it automatically is the perfect style to express political critique. Other than other folk revivals it didn't originate from chauvinistic longing to simpler times, but rather from a need for change. And this return to roots seems odd with this motive, until you realize it comes from a place of poverty. And that's why it's perfect: it shows the poverty perfectly; no better way to express poverty than by going back to your roots. It became a usual thing to do when culture had changed for people at the bottom of society to express their distress by going to the roots, the roots being a different thing every time. In the seventies that was rock 'n' roll, and we called the revival punk for instance.
