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 8% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.4/100, a mean average of 76.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.6.

Tour-de-force performances by (so I say) the best jazz band in the world at the time recorded beautifully, every instrument from bass to ride cymbal perfectly clear and present, so often not the case in live jazz, or studio recordings for that matter. Even the introduction by the legendary Pee Wee Marquette is classic; if you don't know who he is, you really should check out the excellent write-up on him at the Dangerous Minds web site, he's a jazz immortal. (Disappointingly, if you read that article, I think he pronounces Horace Silver's name correctly on this occasion.) This is an all-time great jazz record.
