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 2% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 79.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 80.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.1.

This record --- and BB King --- doesn't need me to enhance any reputation. Obviously this is one of the greatest blues recordings ever made.

This bucks the trend for me in two ways:

1. I usually don't go for live albums... except for blues artists. The rawness of the music is usually highlighted by an intimate audience. This is a dynamite live performance.

2. I usually find BB King overrated. On this album, he more than lives up to the hype.

Marvellous album by the King of the Blues. Opens up with four straight stunners culminating in How Blue Can You Get, and if it hadn't been for the inclusion of Help the Poor at the end this could have been the perfect blues album.
