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 This album has a Bayesian average rating of 79.7/100, a mean average of 78.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.4.

Transparent Radiation is absolutely stunning!!! It's like floating down a lazy river while the most beautiful of sunsets is hanging in the sky.
