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 3% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 77.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 78.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.9.

From micah88800 01/10/2018 20:55
I prefer this one to Core. It has more varied and creative songs imo. Not every song is perfect but this is some amazing alt rock/grunge. And it contains the biggest dark horse of the STP catalog, "Kitchenware and Candybars"

Favorite tracks: Silvergun Superman, Kitchenware and Candybars, Interstate Love Song

Purple is competent, but it's an artistic dead end, like Kiss and Aerosmith updated for the 1990s.

Vasoline, Interstate Love Song, Pretty Penny, Big Empty, Silvergun Superman, are very solid. The others... well I feel they are average, but that's my taste.

I actually enjoy this album more than Core, even if it is a little uneven. Highlights: Meatplow, Vasoline, Interstate Love Song, Big Empty.

Great alternative rock/grunge album. Best 5 songs average is 93/100 and album can get great 95/100. It's a continuously strong album. Best songs are "Silvergun Superman", "Big Empty" and "Unglued" all 95/100, closely followed by "Meat Plow", "Vasoline", "Lounge Fly", "Interstate Love Song", "Still Remains" and "Kitchenware And Candy Bars" all 90/100.
