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 81.2/100, a mean average of 81.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.6.

This is a flawless John Lennon compilation. It contains all of his Top 40 hits, and then a few great songs that didn't: "Mother," "Love," "Working Class Hero," and my personal favourite, "Jealous Guy."

"Lennon Legend" is the perfect introduction to Lennon's solo career. It's a shame that it is now out-of-print, and has been replaced by the far inferior set "Power to the People: The Hits," which only has 15 songs.
