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 72.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.4.

I have the CD version, which comes with the brilliant Release The Bats, but also comes with the abysmal Blast Off, which is just awful. The album itself is alright, save for a few tracks.

I cannot argue with btener11. I don't like the cover, but it works for this album, I think.
