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 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.0/100, a mean average of 77.8/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.9.

A very relaxing and mellow listen. Exactly the kind of thing you think of when someone mentions an easy jazz album. Which is not to say it's trivial. Just really easy on the ear.

Gorgeous laid back suite of ice cool jazz. This concoction must be one of the best jazz albums of the 60's.
