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 mean average rating of 87.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 89.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.2.

A truly masterpiece
La Obra Maestra del Jazz!! Nada mas que agregar :)
A little jazz goes a long way.
Kind Of Blue brought modal jazz to the top, being It a landmark in Jazz, probaly the most important Jazz album ever.
In 2019, when you hear It and compare with basicly everything else that was going at the time, you understand why It attracted so much atention.
Miles David is a legend, no doubt about It, one of the greats of music in general, but I think it's not only for the songs alone, he always inspired for pushing things foward, reinventing the genre whenever he got the chance to do so. Most people have pointed It out, but It is kind Of true, If Miles David didn't existed, Jazz would have fallen from grace way, way earlier

Masterpiece of Jazz and not only
My appreciation of jazz has grown considerably over the five years or so and this has become one of my favourite albums of the genre. Stunning
This took me multiple listens to get into. Awesome album.
Favorites: So What, Blue In Green, All Blues.
A wonderful work of art, and timeless. As others have already mentioned, this is a very accessible jazz CD, and it's a great place to start for those who are interested in exploring the genre.
