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 73.0/100, a mean average of 71.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 72.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.8.

A great album & their best work, every track is good even the Richard Carpenter vocals on the track Piano Picker. Side 1 (tracks 1-6) is exceptional easy listening laid back music and the final 3 tracks are a brilliant way to close an album, Road Ode is a very underrated song. Karen Carpenter has a quality in her voice that melts your soul.
