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 Bayesian average rating of 70.5/100, a mean average of 69.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 70.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.0.

Perfectly good, but far from earth-shattering.

Probably the least heralded of all the... "The" garage-rock bands that dominated the alternative charts in the early 2000s, they were the most straight-forward and most beholden to their influences (mainly the 80s american underground and grunge), but they had a decent enough sound and plenty of energy. Unfortunately they had a tendacy to write half-baked rock songs that were all hook and no sinker, every song feeling mildly dissapointing despite providing an initial blast. So overall, the sound was appealing but all the mediocre songs with no real distinctive artistic voice unfortunately makes for a middling listen, but at fifteen it was suitable enough for my rock-n-roll ankling for just riffs and attitude.

An album that starts out great and then... well it falters... They remembered to keep the guitars plugged in. That is the main thing after all.
