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 9% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.2/100, a mean average of 74.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.0.

Tom Zé's greatest classic is a baffling, experimental take on samba that also manages to be a lot of fun. It's very good from start to finish, although tracks don't sound the same.

David Byrne bought this on a whim during a visit to Brazil and was so impressed that he released a compilation of Zé's work, basically saving his career.

This is a great album that despite being very experimental, it still keeps the listener amused and interested. This album should be higher in the list of Best Brazilian Records. In my opinion in the top 10 for sure.
