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 73.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 73.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.3.

Girl Band are the sort of band for which the term “reinvention of the guitar” seems to have been born for. There is some serious guitar-abuse that harks back to the more out-there noise-outs of Sonic Youth and My Bloody Valentine in extremis and then some.
I can’t make out a word Dara is singing but every primal scream he utters sounds strong enough to strip wallpaper. More importantly, this is the best thing they’ve done so far and likely to be the most original/innovative thing you’ll hear all year.
