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 16% of all albums on This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.0/100, a mean average of 76.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.3.

Starts quite promising...I do like the Stereolabesque 2nd track but as the album goes on it just kinda drifts into a stoned trance and doesn't really go anywhere. Good but not great.

Brian Jonestown Massacre has changed lineups repeatedly, and their sound has changed along with it. So I won't bother trying to explain what their sound is (ok, if pushed, I might make up the term revival psychedelic), but will instead focus on what Aufheben sounds like. It's like psychedelic rock, dialed back to folk-rock intensity, mixed with world music. It kinda works.
