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 77.9/100, a mean average of 76.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.8.

Meu Deus, que viagem maravilhosa!
Part 2 is just a bit better for me, but I abolutely love the entire record, through and through.
This is a beautiful exercise in abstract playing based on jazz.
The drums and the long structure keep it all safe from being just a freak accident.
What makes this a good record, besides the capabilities of its players - is the interaction.
There's nobody here playing to himself. Everybody is reacting to everybody. Most modern free musicians don't realize this :)
There's also some proto-ASMR in here :D
Has some great parts, but some mediocre parts drag it down a bit. The bass and drum solos are too long and rambling, yet I would say Ornette's soloing stands out (minutes 10-19)

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
