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 1% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 81.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 81.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.9.

I'm just listening to this, and must say I like it far more than the first record. Cool vibe and 'Artists Only' is just amazing.

I think "Talking Heads: 77" has better high points, but "More Songs About Buildings And Food" is a more consistent record overall; taking their strenghts and making more solid songs throughout. Amazing!

Much like their debut, but with a little more confidence, better songwriting, a smidge more polish.
