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 17% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 74.9/100, a mean average of 74.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.7.

A very enjoyable country record from one of country's best singers. When Clark makes a record, he makes it good.

An absolute standout country record (probably more folk than country) from legendary Texas songwriter. He writes them here like no one else. Also check him out in the movie Heartworn Highways. He passed in 2016. Essential.

This is probably the best album from probably the best country songwriter (at least, one of the best) of the latter twentieth century.
