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 73.5/100, a mean average of 72.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.1.

I suppose there is some debate on whether you rate this as a stand alone work or as an element of something bigger. As an element I imagine it would receive a better score but as I prefer to rate it as a stand alone project I can’t recommend. The non S&G cuts are quite boring to listen to outside of the movie context, the melodic interpolations of classic songs don’t really do much in this context either, the only pieces that hold up are sound of silence which is on a classic album you’ve almost definitely already heard if you’re listening to this, same with April come she will. The only other fully fledged song is Scarborough Fair/Canticle which for some reason repeats which as great a song as it is, doesn’t add much. Best not to waste your time with this one.
