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 72.5/100, a mean average of 72.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 72.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 20.0.

Every copy I've seen says 1972 - only Wikipedia seems to have it as 1971. This is the best KA album by a distance in my view - with just the right amount experimentation and whimsy, spread across a range of hugely diverse but outstanding tracks. The title track is pure joy.

Another lovely album from Kevin Ayers. Whatever, is another quirky LP, completely unique and underrated. Some lovely moments here, stranger in blue suede shoes, champagne cowboy blues, and, Margaret. There is a little bit of indulgence in some places, but it's still a record of pure genius.
