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 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 81.3/100, a mean average of 81.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.8.

Yes, compliations can be good and they can be bad. It still makes no sense whatsoever to have best of compilations in a best albums of the year list. It's not a real album. The music on it is not from 1998. And how do you even compare a life's work to someone else's single album?

This was my introduction to Nick Cave. I knew 'Red Right Hand' & the 'Roses' song with Kylie and liked them both. Hence I bought this to get to know some of his other work. Massively impressed. Great selection of songs throughout. I now have a good half dozen of his studio albums and love them all. Compilations are a good starting point when discovering new music. Highly recommend this one.

This is pretty damn good as far as compilations go. The track listing is superb. All the songs you'd want are pretty much here. Excellent, especially for casual fans(if indeed there are any).
