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 81.7/100, a mean average of 81.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.1.

His 4th album _ also the 2nd and last recorded during his political exile in London. Differently from the previous album (which I prefer), this time Caetano has a proper band and goes further on mixing English and Portuguese lyrics. The 2 longest tracks are an adaptation of a famous poem from the 17th century and a cover of then recently rediscovered samba composer Monsueto.

Complexa, canta a solidão e o sofrimento, as raízes brasileiras com o moderno rock inglês. Melancolia e beleza em duas línguas.

#5 on my list. The masterpiece of the greatest genius of brazilian music. Few people have understood and loved Brazil as Caetano and this is historic.
Valeu, brasucas!
