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 24% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 74.7/100, a mean average of 73.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 74.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.5.

This isn't just one the finest reggae albums ever, it's one of the greatest albums of all time. Peter Tosh and his excellent band produce a record so enjoyable and laid back that it's just contagious. The reggae grooves seep into your soul and you just have to surrender to the moment. The title track is excellent, a call to legislate the use of marijuana, it's both sincere and extremely funny. Other highlights include, til your well runs dry, no sympathy, and the brilliant, why must I cry, my favourite track on the album. Legalize it, is one of those records that deserves much more attention than it currently has. Superb.

Peter Tosh was a cool guy. This album proves so. He wrote catchy songs and smoked ganja with a cool looking pipe (as proven in the album cover). When I listened to this I was pretty surprised with how unique some of the tracks were, from the sexy guitar pickin in "Till Your Well Runs Dry" to the horns in the intro of "Burial". My only major complaint with this project is that the backup chicks Tosh sometimes uses become a little too overbearing in tracks like "Ketchy Shuby", but hey, we gotta legalize it, not criticize it.
