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 74.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 74.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.6.

One of the most interesting, craziest things I've heard. Like watching a carefully orchestrated train wreck, you have to pay attention and can't help but come away going "Holy crap what?"

Of the Surfers more outrageous experimental work, this easily the most listenable.

Is this just the most screwed up album ever? I think so! Sick fusion of punk and psychedelia.
