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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.8/100, a mean average of 78.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 10.5.

Working my way through their discography and can say that, though they definitely came into their own on their next album, this album is a good progression of their sound and songwriting. Victoria Legrand polishes her voice further in following albums, but this is a good inception point for all the great music they've put out.

Best Tracks: Wedding Bell, Gila, Heart of Chambers
