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 68.6/100, a mean average of 65.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 65.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.9.

I guess if you can't be original, the next best thing is to copy a successful act like The Smashing Pumpkins.
I personally disagree with the comparison, but people debating it kept Silversun Pickups relevant for a couple albums.
Their change in sound is now generic and sounds comparably to no band of memorable worth or value. Against their Better Nature, they live amongst the weeds of average bands now. Too bad so sad.

Take their first 2 albums or their 12 best songs. Either is of musical value compared to this waste of time.
