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 5% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.2/100, a mean average of 75.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 77.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 22.1.

I must say I vastly prefer An American in Paris. Guess Jazz is just not my thing?

Berstein's exuberance is a perfect match for Gershwin's music. "Rhapsody" will take you away, from opening bluesy note and seduces you with all it's jazzy brilliance. It's a lively, flashy, and intensely enchanting piece of music. This rendition of "Rhapsody in Blue" is unsurpassed. "An American In Paris" is a vital, moving performance, presented with wonderfully spontaneous energy. Enduring Music! Amazing Performance!
