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 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 80.3/100, a mean average of 80.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 12.5.

This is a quintessential hard bop album. The tunes are excellent and the improvising spectacular. Lee Morgan is at his peak both as a soloist and as a leader here.

Great jazz album from Lee Morgan. Every title is great, especially the stunning title track. Great playing, great tunes. Great stuff.
