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 albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 80.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 80.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.6.

I would consider this album to be solid through-and-through. Everything is great about this album. I've got to listen to it again to appreciate it more.

I can see why some would say his guitar masks the rest of his flawed work. Doesn't matter. Sublime guitar + decent everything else = solid late 60s album.
