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 85.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 87.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.7.

Great jazz record, by the 3rd listen i finally got it and I can tell that while it has some annoying moments, the beauty of the rest is incredible.
Best tracks: Resolution, Psalm

A case of the whole being greater than the parts. The best structured album I know besides Master of Puppets but I prefer Giant Steps as I find it more easily to enjoy. It is very addictive though, something I dont usually associate with mainly instrumental music like jazz or classical.

I got this in 2020 without really knowing Jazz - but as an entry level it is entertaining

My 3rd favorite Jazz album of all time, after Kind of Blue and Time Out. It makes Jazz very accessible for the new listener.

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.
