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 5% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.3/100, a mean average of 76.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 11.9.

Another solid Elbow album. As always, full of inventive pop with a strong Peter Gabriel influence. Not as good as, asleep in the back, but still decent.

Nothing on this one really blew me away, except for the title track. This album is kinda like a warm-up for the Seldom Seen Kid.

My favourite Elbow albu. Combines the edgy alternative ethos from the first 2 albums with the more accomplished songwriting of the recent outings. Great expectations and my very best are particularly strong.
