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 mean average rating of 73.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 73.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.5.

Sacred. So few people know this album even exists. A guitar hero's coming out party. (some might say "lost Floyd")

David's distinctive guitar playing. Has elements of Floyd's Animals in this album.

If you're looking for great guitar playing, you've found it. Good songwriting on the other hand... Look at the Pink Floyd records for that...

Very cool instrumentals, but feels a bit like a Pink Floyd outtake compilation. Nice sunday afternoon music though.
