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 63.9/100, a mean average of 59.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 59.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 19.6.

That was terrible. Highlight is the last 20 seconds of Krakotoa which is used in Lucas Films THX.

I was very excited when I got hold of this record a long time ago because I had never seen it before. After listening to it was disappointed. Stick with Pieces of Eight.

Easily Styx' best Wooden Nickel record. Wonderful tracks such as Witch Wolf, The Grove Of Eglantine, Young Man, 22 Years and The Serpent Is Rising that deserve to be heard live (does anyone have a live recording of these tracks (besides 22 Years)?
