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 6% of all albums on This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.4/100, a mean average of 76.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.5.

A little bit hectic and in your face for a lot of it. Only on the final track, the four minute, after the rain, does it relax and chill a little. A good album if you're in the right mood for it but certainly not one to chill out too.
