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 4% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.6/100, a mean average of 76.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.9.

82-87 isn't 5 years, it's 6 years, count them. 82, 83, 84, 85, 86, 87. so it's 8 records full of "noisy trash-songs" in SIX years! it's interesting though how the lowest rating comes from a guy who comments like that, you know this must be good stuff! I don't know what the "unhelpful" votes were for, that comment helps a lot if you think about it.

To me the best Husker Du album and nothing to do with noisy trash songs: the song writing is outstanding

Side 1 is great but quality control begins to slide throughout side 2.
