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 82.5/100, a mean average of 82.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 84.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.4.

Bought this mostly for "FM," and that led to a long journey of listening to Steely Dan albums.

It's Steely Dan, so of course the songs are great. The only reason to buy this back in the day, before it was possible to buy individual songs, was to get "FM", which wasn't included on any of Steely Dan's studio albums.
