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 64.6/100, a mean average of 64.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 64.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 21.6.

Good union between the symphonic and the distorsions of metal, a nice experiment

Many fans of metal, myself included, see an obvious connection between metal and orchestral music. This is a great experiment in actually merging the two. It doesn't always work, but when it does it's fantastic. "Outlaw Torn" and "Bleeding Me" are two that standout as working especially well. The highlight for me is "No Leaf Clover," which was written for the show and accordingly has the best interplay between the symphonic and the rock.

This is one of my favorite live albums. Metallica songs performed with the San Francisco Symphony. It's a good idea that's executed really well. The songs chosen fit the style nicely.
