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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.5/100, a mean average of 77.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.0.

If Ashes Are Burning is a big warm blanket, Turn of the Cards is an icicle through the heart. Much colder and more darker in tone than its predecessor, but still delivers all the Renaissance classics through Annie Haslam's beautiful voice, John Tout's atmosphere-setting keyboards, and the string arrangements to tie it all together. I don't think it's quite as satisfying a listen as the album before in totality, but it's still great and still has its top-tier moments, like on Things I Don't Understand and the epic closer Mother Russia. Another strong album from this band.
