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 73.2/100, a mean average of 73.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 9.6.

In 1976 we set of for our family holiday which involved 24 hours of continuous driving to the south of France - around 1000 miles away. My Dad took the wheel for the whole exhausting trip and slipped the one & only cassette we had into the car’s tape player. Every time the tape came to an end my Mum flipped it.

DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS AT HOME.

I reckon we must have heard this album about 30 times on the bounce by the time we arrived in sunny Nice. We knew every word and fantastic harmony by heart. Still do.

And I love it today 100 listens later.


PS most Mamas and Papas comps don’t have California earthquake which is a big miss.
