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 73.8/100, a mean average of 72.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.0.

I can’t decide if this is brilliant or a bad Christmas album from some nightmare. Maybe both.

I think it needs plenty of listens to give my ears a chance to cut through Spector’s haze and sort out whether these songs are actually good. It might grow on me.

Edit: It’s great!

A beautiful record, full of filth and bombast, where the artists reveal and revel in their vices, yet the finished product just reeks of talent.

The odd couple Leonard Cohen and Phil Spector unite to produce an odd album. It's almost a tug of war, with Cohen pulling one way, Spector the other. It's an ambitious record, but it's a hit and miss affair. Iodine, is a great track, and, don't go home with your hard-on, is fun, and, memories, is a wonderfully overblown doo wop number. The title track is a Dylan type cut, but the rest is just about ok. An odd album then, but I'm glad Cohen has it in his Canon. Strange fun.

It's still Cohen, but this is the album I turn to the least.

By far his most underrated album. Even Cohen himself was dissatisfied with the production, yet I can't help be notice his trademark sadness still perpetuates itself through Spector's large scale production. Memories is one of his best songs, I can't get over it. And I can see why (according to Cohen) the "punkers" loved this one.

I can't quite explain it, but I love this album even if it sounds nothing like his other albums.
