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 3% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 78.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 78.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 10.3.

Not a patch on Another Music in a Different Kitchen, only tracks 2 and 4 stand out.

Except for Real World and sixteen Again, not a really memorable album... and the instrumental tracks are too long.

Honestly failed to hold my attention. Overlong. The first few tracks are good. But I was bored by the end. Still, the melodies are really nice. And they play very well together.

Good but quality dips halfway thru in particular Sixteen Again, Walking Distance, & Love Is Lies.
