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 73.0/100, a mean average of 72.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.7.

McCartney 1 is my favourite McCartney solo album with McCartney 2 a favourite too but this McCartney 3, despite a few nice moments here and there, is awful. Songs like "All the pretty boys" and "Lavatory Lil" are absolutely terrible. A real disappointment.
I wasn't that fond of this the first time I heard it, but I've been motivated to come back to it a few times since its release and its a grower. I appreciated it more with each listen. Very consistent tone and a very solid effort for an artist at this stage in their career.
Love the usual albums but McCartney does have the habit of playing it safe with his official solo records.
This does not do that. It goes in interesting directions while maintaining a home-spun atmosphere. Gonna play it wsy more than Egypt Station
One of his best solo works in a good long while. Bonus points for the self sufficiency on it
Why don't you for a start?
This comment is beneath your viewing threshold.
It is creative, but rather repetitive and lackluster most of the time.
Loved this better than I & II. (Rating 83.18)
Really awkward, cringey, and mediocre. The first track is good though.
One of my favorite albums released this year. Macca is such a talented musician. What stands out for me is that he really enjoys writing, recording & performing for his many loyal fans since the early 60's.
