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 81.3/100, a mean average of 80.6/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.8.

Coltrane pretty much killed it every time he stepped into a studio. The title track is especially outstanding.

Easily one of the greatest jazz albums of all time. Mixes Coltrane's bop improvisation with classic showtunes and American standards in a way that's both nostalgic and innovative.

After the justly famous take on My Favorite Things and the gorgeous ballad that rounds out side 1, to my ears side 2 is even better, especially Summertime, which I could listen to on repeat. Not quite as good as Giant Steps or Blue Train, my two favorite albums of his, but almost.
