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 72.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 73.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.7.

Another great album. It gets overshadowed by its brother Fly Like an Eagle, but its just as good. Jet Airliner may be my favorite Steve Miller song.

Solid album - Jet Airliner best track and Jungle Love is probably second. A soft rock album with hints of psychedelic in an updated 70s sound. Late 70s early 80s were the height of this band and if you choose one album of SMB to listen to then this is the place to start

Classic softguitar rockalbum with many fine songs. I do not knew all albums of this band, but in this album they have great soft sound, swingig/rolling/rocking sound. Very positive music, great compositions with great production. I gave 91/100 points.
