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 is rated in the top 12% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.6/100, a mean average of 74.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.7.

Satisfying hard rock album with great hooks and sweet riffs. Though it is more an album to listen on the back ground that to listen while paying full attention. Still Loving You remains one of the rock ballad classics.

Don't lose your mind like that, you may now think this is one of the best records ever, but you'll look back at this comment in one or two years and you'll be like "Oh God, why?"

The more you listen to music, the more music has to be special to satisfy you. And this is actually nothing really special. Just fun 80's hard rock. I like it, but there are so many more interesting albums... and I have not even listened to so much music.

ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME? Nothing special? This has got to be the best Scorpions album ever. Heck, this is one of the best 20 albums I've ever heard! Blackout wasn't. Do you guys think it's not good because Blackout was heavier? This album is the Metallica Black Album of the Scorpions.

All the songs were cool, and they just kept surprising me with each tune. Honestly, I thought to myself "This album won't be perfect," but I had a feeling I was wrong. Truly great album.

Nothing special but not bad. Still Loving You was a very big hit in Poland in 80's

Not much special here with their brand of rock (metal?) besides the hit ("rock you like a hurricane").
