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 73.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.0.

Paul Simon delivers another excellent record. So beautiful or so what, is Simon still trying different stuff. He uses samples of old blues tracks on a few songs, including the brilliant opener, getting ready for Christmas day. The afterlife, is one of the highlights, about a guy whose just been sent up to heaven. Dazzling blue, is lovely. Simon rock's it up a bit on, love is the eternal sacred light, and the title track. Love and hard times, is a nice acoustic track. All in all, another good album from someone who still is at the top of his game.
