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 71.9/100, a mean average of 71.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 71.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.0.

É difícil fazer uma crítica anacrônica para esse álbum. O som é fenomenal, mas a visão de que existem "povos selvagens", a simplificação de culturas e a apropriação em moldes culturais brancos era comum no período. Ouvir é importante, mas também é importante entender a mudança do paradigma social.

This album makes me really angry. The whole concept of this music is to evoke the "primitive" lifestyles of the "savage" peoples of Africa. The title of the album, "Ritual of the Savage", exemplifies so perfectly Les Baxter's ignorance towards non-Western cultures. HOWEVER, this music is just so fun to listen to. Like, fuck. This music is so much fun.
