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 albums on This album has a mean average rating of 75.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 75.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.1.

Excellent middle period Hancock album. More mainstream and not as avant garde or challenging as the Sextant/Mwandishi/Crossings era, but still a solid listen.
