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 73.6/100, a mean average of 72.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.2.

Everyone's favourite circular-breathing saxophonist has done it again. Despite the zany cover art, When We Were... is a sombre affair, replete with beautiful drones and spoken word poetry, some of which written by Stetson himself. The five treatments of "The Lighthouse" are especially gorgeous. Stetson is always moving to listen to, but here he does it so gently.
