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 72.6/100, a mean average of 71.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 72.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.9.

The album that brought Aerosmith back into the big league. Permanent vacation, is a thoroughly enjoyable rock'n'roll record. Obviously designed to be successful, it saw the band employing professional songwriters, such as Desmond Child, to work alongside them to bring a more commercial edge to the songs. You have to say it worked. Dude looks like a lady, is a total classic, as is, rag doll, heart's done time, and, Angel. There other excellent moments in, hangman jury, and a cover of The Beatles, I'm down. A super slick rock record and a lot of fun.

Not a bad comeback, but preferred them when they were 'living on the edge'

Great singles, rest of the album just fillers. Not their best work.

Not quite a full recovery, but a step in the right direction... Magic Touch? Even Steven Tyler looks back and shakes his head.

Hot off of their "walk this way" collaboration, they return with some straight-forward pop-rock. "Ragdoll", "Dude (Looks like a lady)" and "angel" were the radio hits.

The bad boys of Boston are back with a bang (sure, technically they were back already on the last outing but nobody really noticed). Changing directions somewhat and almost abandoning the blooze they are now a bit too pop for some taste buds, but if you can savor that this is a treat. A bit of an uneven affair with Rag Doll and Dude Looks Like a Lady sticking out, but with just a few exceptions this is almost up there with Toys in the Attic.
