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 73.3/100, a mean average of 73.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 9.3.

Ry Cooder torna ad armeggiare con chitarre acustiche e mandolini ma soprattutto ( anche ) col blues come faceva quarant'anni prima. La scelta di utilizzare stilemi musicali più vicini alla tradizione del suo paese ha un senso, visto che questo disco è realizzato per festeggiare l'elezione di Obama a Presidente degli Stati Uniti. Non si era mai visto un Cooder così politico ed un po' mi ha sorpreso, così come mi ha sorpreso la buona qualità del risultato finale, seppur ovviamente distante dalle sue cose migliori.

This is a political album. One doesn't have to agree with him, but it's bold to make such an album.
