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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.4/100, a mean average of 78.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.3.

Updating Charlie Parker's innovative alto-style to the tenor, Gordon, aided by a brilliant piano quartet, uses dissonance to great effect. Under Gordon's direction, the tenor has rarely sounded so emphatically alive as it does on 'Go'. This was the album that introduced me to the greatness of the 'Blue Note' label.

This BS & SL, A Love Supreme, Sketches Of Spain and Out To Lunch are some of the best albums ever! And the best Jazz albums ever!

By "best ever" I mean favourite, not that they are mutually exclusive though ^_^
