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 70.7/100, a mean average of 68.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 70.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.3.

Some really great tracks… "Spanish Train", "A Spaceman Came Travellin'", "Lonely Sky", "Just Another Poor Boy", but also rubbish like "The Painter" or "Patrica The Stripper" (funny lyrics, terrible Music)

An interesting album. Fun at times, dark at others, sometimes makes you want to cry. Much better than that horrible song 'Lady In Red'. It's like mixture of Gil-Scott & Bob Dylan, leaning towards Gil-Scott.

A troubadour in the modern age. Stories set to music, like the olden days. Not just lyrics. Try the fun of Patricia the Stripper. The title tune about a game of chance Lyrics and melody
