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 71.3/100, a mean average of 67.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 70.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.6.

I don't really know what to say about this group. They're similar to MCR in tone stuff but they failed to make music as timeless as MCR. Pierce the Veil is very much a product of its time, that being said I do enjoy the time that it captures, even if it hasn't aged amazingly.

Fast. Loud. Emotional. Heavy. This album changed the way i view music entirely. Lyrical masterpiece. Instrumental Masterpiece. Go listen to 'I Dont Care If You're Contagious' and 'The Boy Who Could Fly' right. Now.

Not awful, quite decent for the style.
