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 8% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.3/100, a mean average of 74.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.4.

The three songs belong to the canon of light pop music forever. With those I can easily give 80

I received this album as part of an extended family blind Christmas gift exchange... when I was seven... not the best gift to land in the hands of a seven year old. Nevertheless, I had a cheap record player I threw the album on... and at the tender age of seven, instantly fell in love with Karen's voice.

Superstar was my favorite song. Today, nearly a half century later, I'm still in love with Karen's voice and I believe Rainy Days and Mondays is the best Carpenters song ever and a solid 100.

The criticism for them seems arbitrary. Their arrangements are incredible. It's 10 steps beyond feel-good music

Filled with some of the Carpenters greatest songs - "Rainy Days and Mondays", "For All We Know", "Superstar", "Sometimes"...
