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 80.7/100, a mean average of 82.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.7.

I highly recommend this double best of album. At the time I bought it, it was the only album that encompassed their entire career. Of course, they have great songs that were left off. They had such a long career, with so many albums, Who could buy all of them?

i grew up listening to The Kinks, so I've always had an affinity with their 'best of'/'collection' albums. this is a huge collection of amazing songwriting.
