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 10% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.7/100, a mean average of 77.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.2.

As a teenager I remember Thomas the Vance playing Budgie quite regularly on The Friday Rock Show. This fantastic Radio show introduced me to so many bands, Budgie being one of them. I am not sure if Budgie took themselves that seriously, if you wanted to make it big would you name a track 'Hot as a Dockers Armpit'! The great thing with Budgie is the contrast from heavy to mellow and it works. 'Make me Happy' is a favourite.
