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 4% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.7/100, a mean average of 77.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.2.

I stumbled upon a Butthole Surfer set at CBGB on YouTube and was pleasantly surprised. Really dug the set so I decided to check out some of their music.

Interesting listen. The album hits a nice stride with Dum Dum Wolly Boly and Negro Observer. The rest is a little too hardcore punk or just plain odd for me.

A mix of unlistenably bizarre experimental songs (Concubine, Cherub) and more conventional surf/cow-punk (Butthole Surfer, Gary Floyd, Mexican Caravan). Not for for everyone, but if like the surfers, this one of the better entries in their catalog.

In this tribal music for modern times pagan rhythms pound, savage vocals hallucinate & guitars squeal and churn like explosive bodily functions. Another Man’s Sac plays like a shamanistic vision laced with scatological vulgarity.
