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 73.2/100, a mean average of 72.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.3.

An eclectic mix of musical genres (world music, free jazz, reggae/dub) performed on an eclectic mix of odd instruments, including traditional African and Asian percussion instruments. Very experimental music, but it's not entirely avant-garde as there is some structure to the songs provided by the whispery female vocals. Not an unpleasant listen, but I can't really see why Kurt Cobain loved them so much.
