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 68.4/100, a mean average of 63.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 63.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 21.1.

These guys have been somewhat forgotten. Too bad, there's some really good early seventies boogie rock here. Their epic cover of the Temptations (I Know) I'm Losing You is worth the price of admission!
