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 66.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 68.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 19.9.

After a 5 year break marriage and childbirth another great album by Rickie Lee Jones appeared. I used to love listening to this album on a Sunday night a beautiful flow of Jazz Soul and folk. The best tracks are Rodeo Girl, Ghost Train, Away From the Sky, The Horses & a cover of Don't Let The Sun Catch You Crying. The title track and Atlas' Marker are also brilliant. Her voice sends shivers it is unique.
