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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 80.3/100, a mean average of 79.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.7.

A strong follow up to, reign in blood. South of heaven, is a slightly slower record, obviously the band knew that had taken 'speed' to it's natural conclusion and made something no less exhilarating, but less about tempo. Good record.

This was the perfect follow up to Reign in Blood. They were never going to top the fury of that album, but by taking it down a notch they showed a different side and it worked well.
