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 70.9/100, a mean average of 69.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 70.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.2.

Makeba was a South African singer who had a difficult early life, but her strong and attractive singing voice got her attention. She blended African and Western music to great effect. She toured with several singing groups in the 1950s, and on gaining international attention she moved to America in 1960 as a solo artist. She became a spokesperson for civil rights in America and South Africa, her home, where she was banned until the end of apartheid. For a while she was also banned from certain Western countries, such as France, and with South Africa refusing her a passport, she had to rely on the goodwill of other African nations in granting her diplomatic papers so she could travel. He main musical output was the 1960s and early 1970s, though she continued to record and perform throughout her life, including touring with Paul Simon on the controversial Graceland tour. She died on stage in 2008. This was her first Western album. Though not the immediate commercial success that RCA had hoped for, the album is widely seen as her best.
