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 4% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.7/100, a mean average of 78.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.6.

The best Meat Puppets album. A psychedelic, nervy, punky, album with a Byrds vibe.

With 'Up On The Sun', The Meat Puppets created a psychedelic-country and experimental fusion that incorporates elements of jazz and even raga. The songs are essentially hypnotic and ethereal 'laid back' meditations which in their way are extremely engaging and innovative.
