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 69.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 70.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.1.

More personal than political, but not quite as strong.

Some lovely moments on this album from the whimsical 'Moving the Goalposts' to the heart-felt 'Tank Park Salute' Billy proves he is more than a political activist and charms the listener with his well crafted songs.
