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 80.6/100, a mean average of 79.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.2.

One of Monk's defining records, and a landmark recording in jazz. A great addition to anyone's collection of essentials.

Essential tracks: Monk's Dream, Body and Soul, Five Spot Blues

Monk was certainly a musician's musician. One of the greatest to ever do it.

Monk's first album in 2 years and his debut with Columbia. Classy and enjoyable fare. Repays the dilligent listener.
