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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.6/100, a mean average of 76.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.7.

A complex and mind bending concept album roughly translated to the visions of a real life protagonist’s dreams whilst in a drug endured coma. Entire internet chat columns are dedicated to decoding its twisted clever lyrics and themes - the ultimate rabbit hole if you’ve got time on your hands

Drunkship of Lanterns is killer. The rest of the album is really good, but sometimes I just want to listen to that song over and over

These guys are crazy awesome. The way Omar Rodríguez-López writes and thinks is very reminiscent of Robert Fripp/King Crimson, but the music comes at you full force like Bad Brains or Fugazi. De-Loused in the Comatorium might be their most accomplished and realized work, though I do go back and forth between this one and their next, Frances the Mute. Definitely give it a listen.

I remember listening to the last 10 seconds of "Inertiatic Esp" on MTV and thinking that something awesome had happened. I literally took note of the band's name and ran to buy the album. What an amazing trip to be 15 and discover a gem like that.
