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 84.6/100, a mean average of 83.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.0.

Pretty long, but with enough substance to stand on his own.

Quite a long noodling psychedelic jazz album that shatters the Earth when it came out. The atmosphere is almost a fever dream to handle, from soothing, to funky, and sometimes, frightening. Not a thing for me at first, but patience is always the key.

Last night, I took out a nice pair of headphones, and listened to my first jazz record. I turned out the lights, and instantly became enchanted by this album. It has this otherworldly quality to it that I just can't explain. I give this album the highest of praises I possibly can.

Mi album favorito, llevo escuchandolo 20 años y aun sigo descubriendo cosas entre las pistas de audio, su profundidad es oceanica, Miles y el resto de musicos lograron crear algo que trasciende el tiempo y que aun 50 años despues de su salida sigue sonando igual de fresco, complejo y cañero

No todo el disco me fascina igual, pero Bitches Brew, Spanish Key y Miles run the voodoo down son para mi musica en su mas alto nivel

La genialidad de Davis hecha Album!! Es mi album favorito de Miles Davis, aunque estoy absolutamente de acuerdo que es un poco difícil de digerir!! Si puede busque un buen vino o cerveza, fume algo de cannabis, coloque este disco y aprecie como es la vida con Miles Davis psicodelico de Fondo!! Un placer este disco!!

Best jazz album I've ever heard. Seriously mindblown. The title track and Miles Runs The Voodoo Down are both masterpieces.
