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 77.0/100, a mean average of 76.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.3.

This collection of mostly covers features Yo La Tengo's quiet side, re-creating them as folk aficionados capable of faithfully performing not only their own material but also pitch-perfect interpretations of classics such as Flamin' Groovies' "You Tore Me Down" and John Cale's "Andalucia." This is one of indie rock's great bands returning to its folk roots in a way that feels both reverent and innovative.

Like unwrapping a present from your Nan on Christmas day, finding it's a hand-knitted pullover but actually really loving it.
