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 68.6/100, a mean average of 67.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 67.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.8.

A fun album, by modern standards many could feel this being a tad corn, pretty damn close to a joke.
Incredible vocals and music for parties....

Calificación final: 82.5 que se redondea a 85. Primera vez escuchando un disco completo de Yma Sumac. Qué voz tan imponente. Una de las mejores que he escuchado en mi vida. Un completo orgullo para la cultura peruana contemporánea.

I meet this artist at the RuPaul's Drags Race's lipsync with Jinkx Monsoon e Detox. What a surprise! A great album.
