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 9% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.0/100, a mean average of 75.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.7.

A good album, not as quite as good as, architecture and morality, but is almost worth the price alone for the absolutely glorious, enola gay, one of the best singles of the early eighties. The rest of the record is fine, but, enola, is the crowning glory.
