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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.9/100, a mean average of 78.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.6.

At least the last 4 songs could have been omitted from this long album, easily. A very front-loaded product

Some great stuff on here - Under the Bridge, Give It Away, Breaking The Girl, I Could Have Lied and Power of Equality. But the rest of it is mostly filler, making it way too long. Not for me.

For me the bass playing and all round energy are what makes this album

I feel incredibly conflicted about this album. On the one hand, I love the groove throughout much of it, Flea rocks, and the acoustic numbers are strong. On the other hand, Anthony Kiedis' rap is aggressively annoying, and the lyrics often leave something to be desired.

I'll admit to a bit of a nostalgia boost on this one. It feels long now in a way it didn't when I was in high school.
