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 70.9/100, a mean average of 70.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 70.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 20.1.

Decent album. A lot of good time twang and rock with a couple of slower ones thrown in. Not one that is on high rotation but enjoyable to pull out every now and then for something unique.
How far can too far go? Clearly not far enough. One lp of mine that wont find its way onto ebay. IF swamp, rockabilly caberet was ever a genre The Cramps pretty much owned it.
The Cramps conjure up the spirit of 1950's rockabilly almost to perfection here. It also marks their departure from horror-themed lyrical content and a move towards tongue-in-cheek sexual innuendo. A really, really fun album.

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
