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 72.6/100, a mean average of 72.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 72.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.5.

The best was yet to come, but this isn’t a bad metal record by any means. All the Rob Halford style screeching that Tom was doing felt a little forced and awkward, but the tunes are fun head banging, genre pushing heart pounders.

A solid debut from one of the most influential metal bands of all time. A little inconsistent as an album, but has some of Slayer's best songs in Die By the Sword, Metal Storm/Face the Slayer, and Black Magic. Probably their third best album after Reign in Blood and Hell Awaits.
