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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.2/100, a mean average of 76.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.9.

this record is full of varied and mainly sophisticated sounds and in some way it's interesting and appealing. there are influences of irish folk, punk and prog. but there is not much that stays in mind. the songs are indeed skillfully but also little poignant.

Few good songs here and there. And overall, not bad. Bit disappointing though due to the hype and ratings. Love the cover btw.

It started great with songs like Chivalry. Gets a bit forgetful near the end.
