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 89.1/100, a mean average of 87.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 89.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.1.

Ma première acquisition jazz dans ma collection de vinyle. Je l'ai écouté et écouté et encore écouté et je ressens toujours la même chose lors de chaque écoute, un sentiment de sérénité

This was the second jazz album I listened to after "A Love Supreme". This was somewhat more accessible, but still I feel I am nowhere close to being able to appreciate or relate this kind of music.
