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 mean average rating of 71.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 71.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.9.

Such an impressive album. Was bought for me as a birthday present a few weeks ago and it's been on the deck ever since. Will undoubtedly become a firm favourite.

Not quite as good as it's predecessor, it falls short of being perfect, due to a couple unnecessary tracks, so it isn't as consistent, but still, a respectable follow-up album.

I spent a lot of time with this record for a few years after it came out and I'm still impressed by the beauty of it. This guy is a magician of sound design with a really sensitive ear.

One of those records that falls victim of always being overshadowed (see what I did there?) by the preceding album which is an all time classic. Very good though it is.
