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 7% of all albums on This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.2/100, a mean average of 72.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 22.0.

Leon Redbone's eclectic and original take on the ragtime traditions of the past have a kind of postmodern resonance. The trick to Redbone's art is the brilliant way he injects a freshness into the blues, jazz, folk and vaudeville traditions, the pomposity and sentimentality of which he satirises by the use of a baritone yodelling croon allied to his use of nostalgic orchestrational arrangements. Redbone's skill is his knack of revealing the precious underbelly of a lost old-style genre and updating it for a contemporary audience.
