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 64.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 65.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.5.

He recorded 5 albums for Geffen in the 1980's this IMO is the best. Not a great Young album but better than its current position (40th out of 55) As the title suggests it is a folk/country album. Misfits and Bound for Glory are the best tracks.
