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 5% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.1/100, a mean average of 78.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 11.8.

I saw the Pastels many years ago at the Boardwalk in Manchester. They were utterly brilliant. That gig started a life long love that never seems to wain... I agree with Lancashirerab - everyone should have some Pastels in their life. :)

It's no wonder that Pam has crushed on Stephen Pastel :)

Everybody should own a Pastels' album. Stephen Pastel is such a great front man. I remember travelling through to Paisley to see the Pastels. We were all so excited at the prospect. It was a great night. We all bought Pastels badges to wear.
