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 10% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 75.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 75.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.0.

gorgeous isn't it. a wondrous blend of arabic, turkish, kurdish, armenian and african folk music set to an ambient pace. i'd go as far to say that it's probably one of the best (if not the best) records from the new age genre. a brilliant collaboration from artists all over the globe.

The tone of this album is a melancholic and meditational mixture of Western and Eastern existentialism allied with a sense of Christian piety and exotic detachment. Gabriel's masterpiece is first and foremost an ethereal and evocative study in 'sound' which acts as a kind of catalyst for the semiotic interpretation of each of the individual 21 pieces on the album.
