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 71.0/100, a mean average of 69.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 70.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 19.0.

The best post Dio album they made. Great rocking songs, and I've always had a soft spot for JLT's vocals.

'Midtown Tunnel Vision' my personal favourite on this one, I prefer this 'Difficult to Cure' to the other post 'Dio' albums.

The two covers are the weak tracks.
