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 mean average rating of 84.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 85.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.6.

The arrangements and the songwriting are what really get me--completely assured, not a single misstep, everything in place. And all four are such powerful, masterful performers; Bonham and JPJ at the bottom of the mix are forces of nature. Awesome.

Another awesome album by Led Zeppelin. This album, the debut, and IV make for an awesome trio of albums.

A great album. Zep's most fun since II. Like many, there are days I just have to skip D'yer Mak'er, but still a great album overall.
