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 17% of all albums on This album has a mean average rating of 74.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 75.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.9.

A radical change of direction from their earlier punk days but still an excellent album. Shadow of Love and Edward The Bear are wonderful tracks
