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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.4/100, a mean average of 79.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 9.9.

A little-known or praised album, which deservedly should enjoy some praise. A super combo reaches their zenith with hints of the future electric future. Listen to this
Ousado álbum de transição!
I've got this on CD, and I'm trying to find out if side one of the original LP was really 29 minutes in 1968--I didn't even know they could do that technically back then. Anyway, it stretches languidly across that 29 minutes, as welcoming and exploratory as Kind Of Blue; jazz and non-jazz fans alike could listen together like they do for that one. Tony Williams practically tears his drum kit apart under(?) other people's solos on "Black Comedy," definitely a highlight. Some people call this a transitional album. Nope. This is the second-to-last album of a band that had been working together for years, and who had evolved together from very hard, focused work--this is not transitional, this is a culmination. One of the really great Miles albums; the second quintet was as good a band as there's ever been.
