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 3% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 79.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 79.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.9.

Some years ago I probably would have had Hips and Makers in my overall top ten for the nineties, as I found former Throwing Muses frontwoman Kristin Hersh's voice to be stirring and spellbinding. I still do, but this album has lost a bit of its luster over the years, as it feels to me like an album of its time--a celebration of a kind of nineties femininity that no longer fully resonates--rather than a timeless masterpiece. Nevertheless, "Your Ghost," with an interesting and surprising guest vocal performance from Michael Stipe, is appropriately haunting: "It's the blaze across my nightgown / It's the phone's ring."
