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 71.0/100, a mean average of 70.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 70.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.8.

Deserves less credit because they already made this album with the debut Frog Stomp.

Had a couple decent singles and starting to show their pop theatrics a little bit.

This is nothing special and the worst of Silverchair albums

@pearljammer: True, but as an original band, they were nothing special, especially here.

The beginning of their evolution into an original band.
