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 4% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.5/100, a mean average of 79.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.7.

My best jazz fusion LP. Since I've seen Ponty in Nisville Jazz Festival, in Serbia, I discover his underestimated discs. "The struggle to the turtle to the sea" or "Mirage" is what I call music. To enjoy in an intimate live performance with a moonlight and a beer.
