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 72.9/100, a mean average of 72.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 72.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 10.4.

An elegant mess. The band would go on to much greater things, of course, but a solid first record that sets the stage for what's to come. Ronnie's version of "Stone" on Pete Townshend's "Who Came First" is much better.

Enjoyable enough, but not in the class as, blind horse, or, ooh, would be. Still, a lot of fun.

A good "debut" from the band that transformed from the Small Faces. Rod Stewart is the lead on most of these album tracks there is also 2 instrumentals. Best tracks are 3 Button...& Wicked Messenger.
