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 is rated in the top 6% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.8/100, a mean average of 77.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.9.

CAUTION: This album is NOT the original 1967 mix. This is a re-issue from 1985 and the drums and bass have an eighties sound. If you want the original, get the "We're Only In It For The Money" cd with the Mothers wearing dresses standing in front of a yellow background. That is the original mix from 1967.

Two Mothers/Zappa records on one disc. Lumpy Gravy is actually a Zappa solo album supposedly inspired by John Cage. We're only in it for the money is a "Mothers" concoction and typically experimental. This CD issue is a real bargain if you like controlled satirical insanity.
