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 all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.5/100, a mean average of 77.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.9.

Simply awesome and original. Nothing comes close.
Brinca com as notas!
Great collection of early Monk recordings. Elephants make better pianists than you might think.
I like this, a good album.
Straight up slick.
With Monk jazz changed for ever. This strange and dear bear was another world himself. Without any doubt, the best composer (alongside with Ellington) of history of jazz. Listen anywhere of his tunes: "Blue Monk", "Round About Midnight", "Epistrophy", "Crepuscule with Nellie", "Bemsha Swing", "Ruby, My Dear", "Off Minor", "Well, You Needn't"...... Like Lubitsch said: Heaven can wait.

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
