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 72.6/100, a mean average of 72.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 72.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.5.

This is the only compilation of Status Quo that I like to listen to. Not a single track on 12 Gold Bars Vol 2 is better than any track on this one. But still it's only a compilation and can not be compared to the original albums they recorded under this period.

This is one of my top 100 albums where I also comment on my history with music: check it out!

I still think that Status Quo is much underrated for just being a three chord band: these guys really rocked and being a guitar lover who has since then discovered a lot of other music, I still love songs like "Caroline", "Again and Again" and "Whatever you Want". I don't think even Black Sabbath could match the vast number of killer intro's Parfitt and Francis Rossi came up with. Just to say that this album is not only sentiment but still an absolute favorite.
