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 67.9/100, a mean average of 65.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 65.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 23.9.

That's not the cover I've got. Anyway, gold & platinum, is one if the great compilation albums. All the great Lynyrd Skynyrd songs are here from, sweet home Alabama, free bird, and, my personal favourite, Tuesday's gone. Excellent record.
