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 72.9/100, a mean average of 73.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.9.

I've been to a bunch of P-Funk shows and I've been listening to their albums and studying the album covers for many, many years. This is my favorite P-Funk album. Come for the Sly Stone cameo, stay for the funk that just keeps cooking, start to finish. "Hey mon, I'd just rather go dancing than to sit and have a meeting about the problems..."

The song at the end does get pretty filthy, now. All part of the joke...they had a big fight over the censorship of the very raunchy original album cover and some other legal things, who knows, and the album disappeared--you really could NOT find it for years...I know, I had lost my copy and I was looking. A P-Funk treasure, this one.
