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 mean average rating of 73.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 72.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.8.

447 in 2007! Wow, quite surprised - this got very good reviews at the time and for my small circle it was on heavy rotation for that year. Overture is my favourite song on here - fantastic memories of listening to this on the way to school.

Hmmmm, what does he mean by "the magic position"? Hmmmmmmmm. Not that the album is more overtly sexual than previous albums, but Patrick brings more energy and audacity on his new album than the more maudlin Lycanthropy or Wind in the Wires. "Accident & Emergency" is the best track to start with.
