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 8% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 75.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 76.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.6.

One of the best early albums. Uli Jon Roth is very blues guitarist.

The Uli Jon Roth era is timeless! Though the 80's era Scorpions albums sold better, the further we get away from that decade the more these 70's Scorps releases stand out. Taken by force followed by Virgin Killers are masterpeices! Roth is easily one of the mosy underated guitar virtuosos ever.
