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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 87.1/100, a mean average of 85.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 87.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.6.

My favourite jazz record, Coltrane's devotion is truly amazing, and Jones energy on drums is fabulous.

Definitely my favorite jazz album. I'm personally not religious, but I appreciation John Coltrane's religious fervor in this jazz suite. If you own a physical copy, read Coltrane's poem to God in the booklet. It helps give you a better sense of what Coltrane was trying to do.

I decided to give jazz a try and this seemed a good starting point. Sadly, I didn't make much out of it.

This is a must listen for all fans of jazz, and even for fans of music in general. This is Coltrane's 'Kind of Blue'. A masterpiece that will likely be revered for years to come. A personal favorite is 'Resolution'.

Simply beautiful. I'm not a Jazz fanatic at all, but Coltrane makes me weep.
