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 is rated in the top 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 79.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 79.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.5.

A truely great rock album that I played on high rotation when I discovered it in 1985 and still a great listen today. From Refugee to Even The Losers, Don't Do Me Like That and all the rest.

A great Tom Petty Album, probably his best with the Heartbreakers.

Arguably Tom Petty's best overall album. And, of course, "Refugee" and "Don't Do Me Like That" are classics.

The whole album is fantastic from start to finish. I especially love Refugee, Don't Do Me Like That, and Even the Losers. Rest in peace, Tom.

A good starting point for Tom Petty. First three tracks are perfect.

A very solid work shored up by a couple of great songs (Refugee is one of my favs ever). I love the sound of the Heartbreakers and Tom Petty's songwriting. Very good.
