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 4% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 77.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 77.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.4.

Whenever I think of this album, I remember listening to this on my Sony Walkman, doing my dumbbell reps and my dad coming in my room telling me the gulf war had started. Totally irrelevant to anything apart from I still love it the same as I did then as a teenager. Always loved their singles that I'd tape of the radio, especially when they got darker after Vince left.
