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 65.8/100, a mean average of 59.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 59.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.4.

I am a fan of T.Rex have been since I was 11. This is the album most people think of as his (Marc Bolan) weakest. It is not that bad and to me is better than "Dandy" and "Futuristic Dragon", Stand out tracks are Light Of Love, Till Dawn & Golden Belt.
