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 all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 79.9/100, a mean average of 79.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.7.

This album is totally outside my wheelhouse, but I enjoyed it quite a bit anyway. It does start to sound the same after a while, I can usually only listen to 3 or 4 songs from this at a time.

One of the most important albums in history. A wonderful stepping stone into this style of music.

Timeless album. Chan Chan is the really stand-out song. Takes you anywhere you want, at least somewhere the sun is shining!

A lovely reconstruction of pre-revolution club music but nothing really standout among the tracks.

Probably 7th listen now, and while I didn't fall in love instantly, this grew on me, and I just wanted to take a 50 chevy, smoke a cigar and chill on the beach and listen to this through a really old radio. Well, actually really good headphones, but that sounded fitting.

Swagger and swing like no other. Great music and great concept to revive 1940s Cuban music. Want to watch the film now.
