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 72.8/100, a mean average of 72.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 72.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.5.

Ci sono un paio di canzoni che si fanno ricordare volentieri, ma il livello complessivo non va oltre la discreta prova.

A very obscure album for McCartney standards.
Overall is good with some good tracks and some less interesting ones. I can't help to think that it would be really good if the tracklist was cut from 16 to 10 or 11 tracks. Albums got really long in the cd era and I don't think that was a good thing at all.
My personal favourites are Heather and Rinse the raindrops.

This album is good, strong sound, beautiful melodies. I don't know how is rated under 'Flowers in the dirt' or 'back to the egg'... There are some great tracks, some OK, but overall a good album.

I do not like this album at all. Tiny Bubble is annoying, Freedom sucks, and Rinse the Raindrops is a piss poor attempt to rock out.

A really good but underrated album from McCartney it has a heavier sound which is great. Every track has something but could have done without Spinning On An Axis and Heather overall a great return to form. She's Given Up Talking, Driving Rain and Rinse The Raindrops are the best tracks.

A very strong and beautiful album by McCartney. His best solo. It's got some very, very, VERY good highlights like "Lonely Road", "From A Lover To A Friend", "She's Given Up Talking", "Driving Rain", "Your Loving Flame" and "Freedom"

An incredibly underrated and overlooked album from McCartney's catalog. I enjoy just about all of the songs, especially "Your Loving Flame," which in my opinion, is one of his best songs in decades.
