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 12% of all albums on This album has a Bayesian average rating of 74.8/100, a mean average of 73.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.1.

Again a very short and impressive album from the namesakes, lol, In man y ways the Impressions are more soulful and true to the tradition than their better known brothers namely the Temptations, albeit being less known by the general public,

Throughout the album, Mayfield's songwriting shines, with lyrics that touch on themes of love, loss, and social justice. His voice is also a highlight, conveying a range of emotions from joy to heartache to defiance. The whole team gives an "Impressive" presentation of their awesome range,

Overall, "The Impressions" is a must-listen for fans of classic soul music, and a testament to the incredible talent and creativity of The Impressions and Curtis Mayfield. It's no wonder that their song "This Is My Country" is still celebrated and cherished. A fine accomplishment
