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 83.1/100, a mean average of 82.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 83.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.9.

Excellent album. Named by Rolling Stone Brazil as the 6th best album in the history of Brazilian music. In my opinion, "Africa Brasil" by Jorge Ben is better, but "A Tabua de Esmeralda" is also a great album that has lots of great songs like: "Os Alquimistas Estao Chegando", "O Homen Da Gravata Florida", "Minha Teimosia, Uma Arma Para Te Conquistar" and "Zumbi". I like the mix of Brazilian rhythms and topics with 70's style music, especially funk.
