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 69.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 69.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.2.

This sophomore album features some classic songs from the Mamas and the Papas, and the chamber-like vocals and arrangements complement the group's style. On the downside, many of the filler tracks are bland and forgettable pop pieces - perhaps they felt rushed, given that this came out so soon after their classic debut.

The highlights are Dancing Bear, I Saw Her Again, and Words of Love. Overall, it sounds a bit too obvious that M&Ps are a vocal group and not a band, and that takes away from the experience.

What a great era for great music. And Mamas & Papas is one of the best bands of that time. Their first three albums are magic, despite this being the lowest of the three. I love their cover of Dancing in the Street
