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 71.6/100, a mean average of 70.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 71.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.6.

One of my favorite Dead Kennedy albums. Not always but over time resinated more and more. Overall much faster paced than there other albums hence how they crammed 21 songs into it. Fantastic from start to finish. Short, fast, furious songs with the always present slap in the face lyrics. One of the most truth bearing bands on the planet but delivered in the happiest way. Love them.

Easily the weakest DK album. Jello spends much of this album launching into pretnetious tyrades, and even much of the music is comparatively flat and uninspired. However, there are enough good songs here (Cesspools in Eden and Where Do You Draw the Line) to make it worthwhile.
