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 8% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.1/100, a mean average of 77.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 10.2.

Musically very strong, but they should have gone instrumental on this one. The vocals and especially the cringe-inducing lyrics really bring it down.

It could have been a real masterstroke. The best tracks are the ones with less vocals.

Although not at the same high level as the early albums, I like it.

Disappointed. While it musically has similarities to the original, the vocals just aren't very good.
