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 73.2/100, a mean average of 72.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.6.

Leonard Cohen is probably my 2nd favourite poet after Bob Dylan so I have quite a few of his albums and this is right up there. Beautifully performed and very personal lyrics. I adore him & this.

I didn't like that much Leonard Cohen's last album. I still listen to some of the songs but it didn't hit me that much, honestly. However, that was a long long time ago. I decided to listen to this due to curiosity (and because it was finished thanks to the help of very great musicians) and wow! I didn't expect this to become my album of the year. It's so so good.
