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 73.6/100, a mean average of 73.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 7.8.

Beware is sometimes brighter and more adventurous than his previous work. But Oldham is still at his best when he whispers spare songs about loss and longing.

Often on beware, bonnie "prince" billy sounds like the harbinger of both the comedy and tragedy of a coen brothers movie filtered through hee-haw. "beware your only friend" who will become angry and defend you when times are tough. And when self-inflected, "you can't hurt me now". My favorite tracks are "you don't love me" where the singer isn't necessarily looking for love but a companion who simply accepts him for him, admiring "you say you like my eyes only or just the way I giggle / sometimes you like the smell of me or how my stomach jiggles / but you
don't love me, and that's alright", and "I am goodbye", celebrating the end of existence saying "I'll likely never know the reasons why / you are hello, I am goodbye" "like the end of something wonderful sometimes / like the way a wound up toy top unwinds".
