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 has a Bayesian average rating of 73.1/100, a mean average of 72.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 73.2/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.3.

Ahh... this is like the randomized equivalent of "Ambient 1: Music for Airports". I'm almost positive that it was a Geiger counter that decided when to play a note on this album back in the day. Obviously very soothing, also on Monday nights!

My ambient choice! Brian Eno does it gracefully.
