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 71.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 71.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 23.7.

John Prine was such a raw talent, too self-effacing and understated for his own good. What a solid collection of well written, memorable songs.

best singer-songwriter of the eighties? you might well arsk. seventies, too. how does some guy from southern illinois write songs this good, this layered? how does anybody do it? most don't. he does throw in one little rocker, iron ore betty, guaranteed to get you up and scrubbing your kitchen floor in no time.
