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 69.5/100, a mean average of 67.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 68.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.9.

Still super safe pop-rock, but this surpasses what Phil Collins was doing at this point.

Mike Rutherford, long-time guitar player for Genesis, started his own band to reasonable pop success. Recruiting fine vocalists Paul Young and Paul Carrack, the Mike+ debut storms out with two pop gems and as a whole is a fine pop album for the guitarist/bassist, even culling an unused Genesis song ("a call to arms") and making it his own.
