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 79.9/100, a mean average of 79.1/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.8/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.8.

He claimed to be from Saturn. I’m not sure that’s far enough out.

Great album! Marvelous compositions that were cutting edge for the time but still not full blown avant garde. Some very nice trumpet work too.

This album is a masterclass on being able to balance laid back yet effective cool jazz/bop sounds with out of this world experimental jazz. Some mesmerizing moments on here, but some 'less is more' memorable hooks as well.

What a brilliantly layered record.
