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 7% of albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 77.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 76.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.0.

LIt took a long time for The Great Destroyer to soak into my thick skull. Eventually, it consumed me. The Great Destroyer is epic and heavy in a subtle way. The lyrics have a dark sense of humor that sneaks up on you. Turn it up, give it time, and Low will crush you.
