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 is rated in the top 12% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.3/100, a mean average of 73.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.5.

Very MOR country. Very inoffensive. Good enough, but not my cup of tea.

It's got a terrific opener, but otherwise this is lighter, more studied and ultimately lesser Cat Power, but it's still pretty listenable all the way through.

been listening to this all these years. maybe 100 times. always liked the sound. but the songs are all empty shells, really. with one obvious exception, of course.

Didn't blow me away as I thought it would. She sounds a lot like Florence Welch, but, I guess Cat Power came first.
