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 73.4/100, a mean average of 73.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.4.

A good concept, if not fully fleshed out, but the lyrics remain very well-written as always, perhaps even more so on "Tales From Turnpike House". Fifteen years on and it's clear that the high quality of their music hasn't deteriorated and this record contains very fine hooks, lovely pop melodies and great dance-y beats. Insightful and teeming with emotion, "Turnpike House" is a big success and one of Saint Etienne's very best.
