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 79.2/100, a mean average of 79.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 11.9.

Miles is in the groove for tracks 3-6, and then on tracks 9 and 10. The orchestra is clearly in-step with Miles; They certainly plan as one unit. Not a weak piece anywhere. It was so good, I listened to the expanded CD edition with an extra 15 minutes of music.

This is the album, in my opinion, that showed that Miles could not only do extended jazz pieces, but could effortlessly stretch his solos from one track to another to another. If Miles was considered a first-rate musician before this, after this, it was clear he was a Virtuoso. 9.5/10!

As far as I can tell, this is Miles Davis's first foray into Third Stream and it is great. The way each piece blends together is magnificent. And Davis blows it out of the water with his playing, as he always does. I also love the little bits of cool jazz that are thrown in there. Makes for a really pleasant listening experience. Think Birth of the Cool mixed with Sketches of Spain and you've got this album, even though it's more than that. This is actually up there for me as one of my favorite Miles Davis records. Really really enjoyed this album.

The first of the Gil Evans collaborations. Years ago, I would get baked during baseball's playoffs and watch the games with the sound off and Miles Ahead playing. It was uncanny how many times the ebb and flow of the game matched the music.

Or maybe it was just the weed.
