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 mean average rating of 66.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 65.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 9.6.

This album is worth a listen just for Ghetto Girl, a cover of an old reggae song. Never bought any Simply Red before this (and haven't since) but heard Mick Hucknall sing it without a band during an interview on TFI Friday years ago and it just blew me away. Like him or hate him, the mans got a great soulful voice.
