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 74.0/100, a mean average of 74.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.3.

For me, this is Our Lady Peace's absolute best. This is an amazing album, all the songs are great from the first to the last. My favorite would be "Blister" i guess, but it's hard to pick just one.

It's the weakest of their first 4 albums, and the songwriting leaves a lot to be desired. Nevertheless, it's still a consistent album, and I still enjoy listening to it after all these years.

Awkward title... The music itself is OK, but not at the level of their first two albums. Seen as a bit of a letdown, and I'd agree.
