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 73.0/100, a mean average of 71.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.1.

Hands down, my favorite Roy Orbison album. If it's not his voice that gets you, it's the instrumentation. If it's not the instrumentation, it's the soul. If it ain't the soul, then it's the tear inducing masterpiece that is "Crying". 10/10.

Running Scared and Crying are the hits. Lana has some cool bass fuzz, the rest probably isn't worth your time. Having said that, this man's voice and ability to convey stuff with things is amazing. Partial to his "hits".

This is album is nothing particularly special. The title track is the only real stand-out.
