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 63.6/100, a mean average of 61.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 61.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 22.4.

My wife says the first song is just about a guy who gets knocked down, then he gets up again. I explain, no, it's an anthem of indominability (a fancy word for getting knocked down but getting back up again). Anyway. Does anyone know if this is the same baby as the one on Anarchy?
