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 9% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.9/100, a mean average of 74.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.9.

Listening to Teenager of the Year, I can't help but be amazed at the amount of music this man had inside of him. This 22 songs-long tour de force manages to be astounding from start fo finish despite its ambitious length and it's as good, or maybe even better, than anything he did with the Pixies. Frank's newfound fondness of difficult rhymes and experimentation with different rhyme schemes showcase his maturity as a lyricist, especially in songs like 'Olé Mullholand' and the beautiful word-perfect 'Speedy Marie'. With his second solo output, Frank Black revindicates himself as one of the great songwriters of the alternative movement.
