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 5% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 77.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 77.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.5.

This is one of my favourite Zappa outings, superb musicianship on Torture Never Stops however the lyrics on this track do paint a picture of a hellish place, worth having this album for the guitar work alone. Probably the closest FZ got to a conventional rock album, not that he was trying to! Find Her Finer makes you feel like you want to get up and 'feel the rhythm'.

Another brilliant Frank Zappa when he was at his solo best. The torture never stops, is one of his all time great tracks and, wind up workin' in a gas station, is a great opener. One of Zappa's ten essential albums.
