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 81.2/100, a mean average of 80.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.2.

A litte step down from their debut, but quality of the record is still high and ahead of its time.

A classic talking heads album. This defined their sound for several years until David Byrne became more of a solo artist with as fellow bandmates playing what he told them to play.
A much better album than the poppy Speaking in Tongues and nowhere near as depressing as Fear of Music.

A completely average Talking Heads record, consistent to a fault.
