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 70.3/100, a mean average of 69.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 69.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.5.

Sigh, Prince used to be such an innovator, now he just copies himself.

Semi-decent album. Pales in comparison to what other 80s acts like Depeche Mode and R.E.M. were putting out at the time.

I like this album a little better than Musicology. He really lets his guitar work shine here, still there is nothing that remarkable on this album.

Doesn't deserve its dismissal. Not a patch on his legendary work circa 1980-1988 but a really solid latter period album loaded with catchy songs.

I was hoping for something even better than Musicology but I guess that album was too good to last. This was the last Prince album I've felt the need to buy, I just feel like I know what to expect by this point.
