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 78.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 10.7.

An underratedly beautiful album. Part spoken word poetry, part jazz, part electronic.

Gil Scott Heron nel 2010 torna ad incidere un disco. Improbabile che ne esca un capolavoro ed invece ci va molto vicino, con un disco di nemmeno mezz'ora contenente un blues scarnificato, a tratti solo parlato, un blues nello spirito più che nella forma, una musica non allegra ma nemmeno dimessa e non priva di soul, che mette in ( poca ) luce un carattere forse piegato ma non spezzato.
