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 has a Bayesian average rating of 71.8/100, a mean average of 70.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 71.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.8.

A transformative album from Al, he's got one foot in the 80s and the other one ahead in the 90s. He's trading quirky for absurd and edgy. The best example of this is Fat, which at first seems like a lazy remake of Eat It, but instead of an innocent and relatable situation relying on food humor, Fat is a relentless stream of self-deprecating insults that don't hold back. Another highlight is the closer, where he gives a straight delivery of a nostalgic, disturbingly psychopathic James Taylor. Little gems don't get beaten to death, like the 1 minute Beastie Boys toy commercial, his first real take on hip hop. Al was so keen on sharpening his humor and developing the quality of his original compositions that he forewent the polka altogether, and it's not any weaker for it.

Probably his best. He goes back to cutting up Michael Jackson, has several other great parodies, and his originals don't take away from the album.
