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 70.0/100, a mean average of 69.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 69.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.6.

Title track is one of the best songs of the 2010s, in my opinion. It gives me so much energy somehow... I immediately want to jump around and party. I also like how the album jumps between their blues rock to a softer more mature sound.

This reminds me a lot of The White Stripes; it's blues-rock stripped down to its fuzzy, garage-band basics. Sweet Sour is all over the place, so it's a bit inconsistent.

I have incredibly mixed feelings about this album. I really expected this album to be great considering how good their last album was, but it wasn’t. It wasn’t nearly as good as I had hoped it would be. But it’s still good. It’s just underwhelming. The whole time while listening to this album I couldn’t help but wonder where songs like “Light Of The Morning" or “I Know What I Am" were. They had this great blues-rock sound that they seem to have somewhat abandoned. Now they seem to have delved into the realm of what’s known as stoner-rock. It’s essentially ethereal, dreamy like rock music. It’s a good album, but not as good as it could be.
