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 74.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.1.

Stephin Merritts songwriting got better and better with each album during the 90s, by now he was 2 albums away from his masterpiece 69 Love Songs. Get Lost unfairly languishes in its big brodher's shadow especially as it is not without merit. By now Stephin had honed his songwriting to a craft where we get Abba/Human League inflected songs recorded with a lo-fi sensibility often with an infuriaratingly earworm quality. Highlights include With Whom To Dance, Don't Look Away, and The Desperate Things You Made Me Do.
