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 5% of all albums on This album has a Bayesian average rating of 77.0/100, a mean average of 76.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.2.

First released in 1975 it features all the singles released up to that point by Lennon/Plastic Ono Band also includes a different version of Mother than the one used as a single. A great collection of songs that fit well on the one album though the full version of Give Peace A Chance could have been included instead of Woman Is The ....Of The World. The single Stand By Me had also been released in 1975 but was available on the Rock N Roll album.

A good compilation but the songs taken out the context of the original albums lose some of their impact.
