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 has a Bayesian average rating of 69.6/100, a mean average of 67.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 67.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.7.

Solidly crafted as ever, but only a few songs that hit the higher level of Avett songwriting.

Not their best, but some strong stand out tracks. "No Hard Feelings" is a Masterpiece!

I was really disappointed with this record by one of my favorite bands. It lacks a lot of the passion of their best work and the song writing seems to have slipped a bit too. However, No Hard Feelings has to be one of their absolute best songs. It's lyrically brilliant and just a beautiful listen.

The latest from the brothers from Concord, NC. The punk edge of Emotionalism is gone and all we have is mellow goodness. It's still a good listen if you like folk with an electrified edge.
