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 78.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 79.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.3.

If you like hard funk this record is for you. She growls, screeches and let's it all hang out here. This album though is not as good as her earlier material and the songwriting is a bit uneven. If she would have hooked up with a better band she might have produced more material and still be around today.

Now, here's some nasty funk. She's ferocious!
