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 72.5/100, a mean average of 70.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 72.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.5.

Surprisingly great, was mistaking it for a regular album, because it all sounds so altogether!

After 'Adrenalize' the band had this album as a way to say goodbye to Steve Clark. And is such a good, really good farewell.
One just can't believe that most of these tracks where actually from 'Hysteria' sessions, because they're so good in their own way. Just with the first 3 songs the album is worth. It also contains 3 of my all-time DL slow songs: 'Two Steps Behind', 'Miss You in a Heartbeat' and especially 'From The Inside'. Highly recommended
