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 mean average rating of 69.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 70.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 10.8.

Joan Armatadings 8th studio album is a mixture of all the styles she has already explored Reggae, Rock. acoustic guitar & electronica. It is a good album it just doesn't work as well as her previous albums. Drop The Pilot, Foolish Pride & The Game Of Love are the best songs here the rest are a mixture of good & ok not her best album but worth a listen.
