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 74.4/100, a mean average of 73.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.8.

The long awaited follow-up to, us, up, is quite possibly Peter Gabriel's most underrated album. It's a dark record full of loss and anguish with a few exceptions. There are some excellent tracks; growing up, is brilliant, sky blue, and, signal to noise, are other strong cuts. I grieve, is achingly beautiful, and, the Barry Williams show, is obviously inspired by Jerry Springer. A good album.
