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 25% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 74.5/100, a mean average of 75.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.3.

Few could have imagined that Quo would one day become one of England's most long-lived rock bands when they released their debut. Nor is the music close to the genre they would be known for. However, the album contains some interesting songs such as Technicolor Dreams and Ice in the Sun. Pictures of Matchstick Men is still the band's only hit in the US. Still, the album is most interesting as a time document.
